1st FRIENDS Caravans at the Svay Rieng University – 17 DECEMBER 2021

On Friday, the 17th of December, 2021, Svay Rieng University (SRU) held its first FRIENDS Caravan at the meeting Hall on Campus. We were joined by to local institutions while another four from other provinces joined via ZOOM. Presentations were given in both English and Khmer to make sure the audience could understand. Teachers, who are also involved in the project, outlined the history of the project and the theory behind the Intercultural Passport.

Students who have completed the intercultural Passport then shared their experiences of doing the MOOC and making their digital stories. They also showed their stories.

To encourage questions at the end SRU used bags and coffee mugs from the SWAG materials as incentives. The whole event lasted around 3 hours with 62 attendees present.
