Polytechnic School faculty are invited to meet a group of faculty members from universities and technical colleges in Vietnam, along with faculty and staff from the Higher Engineering Education Alliance Program (HEEAP) in ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
Lunch and informal conversation will take place from 12 to 1 p.m. Wednesday Sept. 24 and Thursday Sept. 25 in Cooley Ballroom A on the Polytechnic campus.
For more information, contact Gila Aispuro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please RSVP for the lunch at the same e-mail address by 11:30 a.m. on the day of the event.
The teachers from Vietnam are finishing four weeks of training at ASU – including two weeks at the Polytechnic campus – working with ASU faculty, staff and students to learn new teaching and learning techniques, as well as techniques in pedagogy, assessment and problem-based and project-based learning that they can apply in classrooms in their country.
The Fulton Schools of Engineering are a founding partner of HEEAP, along with the U.S. Agency for International Development and the Intel Corporation.
HEEAP partners work to help modernize engineering education in leading universities and technical vocational schools in Vietnam, with the long-range goal of strengthening education, research, industry and economic ties between the United State and Southeast Asia.
HEEAP is administered through the office of Global Outreach and Extended Education in the Fulton Schools of Engineering.
