Korean Traditional Skills Group conducted the training with College of Technology students on August 31 as part of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between Gongju National University of Education (GNUE) -Cebu Technological University (CTU).
The group coordinated with Korea-Philippine Cultural and Educational Exchange Center Corporation (KOPEC) President Dr. Choi Hoon Young who has been promoting Korean culture in the country.
COT Dean Marde T. Ponce initiated the activity to enhance participants’ skills in dressmaking and crafting tea coaster (thread and wood), baby crib hanging mobile, book marker, packaging design and leather handicraft.
Resource speakers shared their thoughts on the growing demand for skills training in today’s internationalization-driven education. GNUE representatives presented the course offerings of the institution before the training commenced. They are positive about bringing skills diversity to CTU, one of the country’s leading universities.
Support from the administration helped much in materializing the two-day affair. CTU President Dr. Rosein A. Ancheta Jr. reiterated in his speech the need for programs that link students to the application of knowledge as this reflects the university’s productive awareness of the ASEAN thrusts. (UPO)
