Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia has announced the opening of applications for the SEA Teacher Program 2024. This program enables students and chemistry teacher mentors to participate in cultural exchanges and teaching practices in various Southeast Asian countries.
In this program, students and teacher mentors from Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia will join participants from various universities, including San Jose State University in the Philippines. They will be placed in Indonesia for one month, from February 7 to March 6.
In addition to teaching practices, participants will also have the opportunity to get to know the local culture and enjoy their leisure time. This program is designed to provide valuable experiences in both education and culture for all participants.
According to Dr. Ella, one of the teacher mentors from Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia, the program aims to introduce participants to Indonesia’s complex education system. By comparing the situation in Indonesia with their home countries, participants are expected to broaden their understanding of education.
Furthermore, the program offers full support to participants during their stay in Indonesia. With supervisors from local universities and schools, participants can feel safe and supported throughout the program.
Participants are also invited to enjoy various activities and excursions during their stay. From visiting museums to trying local cuisine, the program promises unforgettable experiences for all participants.
“We hope that this program will not only provide valuable teaching experiences but also enrich participants’ understanding of culture and education,” said one representative from Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia.
