A course for innovative teaching and research practice for teacher trainers in Cambodia


This project supports educational innovation in the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP) by developing and implementing a blended course. The curriculum is based upon the principles of design-based research. The faculty of Education is the necessary catalyst for innovation and education quality in the RUPP. A group of 15-25 teacher trainers from the RUPP will be professionalized by their enrollment and active participation in the development, implementation, evaluation, dissemination and continuation of the course. The main objective is the strengthening of the participant’s research skills by applying them on curricular challenges and classroom practices. This course development is conducted in co-creation with all stakeholders (coordination north and south, 15-25 participants). The new methodology will be implemented in the RUPP but will also inspire within the ASEAN economic community and other Cambodian and Flemish teacher training institutes (universities and institutes) by organizing several dissemination actions in order to adopt the course.
