Our final stop is Srinakharinwirot University in Bangkok, Thailand.
Srinakharinwirot University was founded in 1974. The philosophy of the university is to utilize higher education to promote growth in five key areas: faith (self-awareness), sacred precepts (ethics), attentiveness (continuous learning), abandonment (generosity), and wisdom.
The university began with six faculties the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Humanities and Science, the Faculty of Social Science, the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Physical Education, and the Graduate School, but has added seven additional faculties in the past 30 years as part of an ambitious education development plan. In 1996, the university established a second campus in Ongkharak, a town 60 miles north of Bangkok.
We have designed a program, in collaboration with SWU faculty, that highlights areas, such as presentation skills, communication skills, research methodologies, and teaching methodologies. Courses and workshops will be available to students and faculty. Our program at SWU will begin on August 27th to September 1st.
