April 1, 2016, 3:13a.m. – THE UNIVERSITY has forged ties with a regional intergovernmental organization that aims to improve the skills of educators.

Through the College of Education, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between UST and Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO)-Innotech was signed last March 17 for collaboration in teacher training.

The agreement covers the co-organization of seminars, workshops and training for teachers of member-countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations; co-production of learning materials both printed and online for teacher training; co-authorship, co-presentation or co-publication of researches on innovative and technological education; and sharing of data.

The MOU was signed by SEAMEO-Innotech Center Director Ramon Bacani, Rector Fr. Herminio Dagohoy, O.P., Education Dean Allan de Guzman, and Lilian Sison, director of the UST Office of International Relations and Programs.

Established in 1965, SEAMEO consists of 11 Southeast Asian countries, namely: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Timor-Leste.

SEAMEO-Innotech is one of SEAMEO’s three regional centers, and is located at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. Roy Abrahmn D.R. Narra
