The Deputy Secretary General of the Office of the Higher Education Commission (OHEC), Mrs. Waraporn Seehanart, recently spoke about the ASEAN Camp program from 9 to 12 August 2013 at the Ban Thai Resort in Suphan Buri. This event aims to enable university students to broaden their horizons and exchange their knowledge through various activities that make them understand what the ASEAN Community is.
"The ASEAN Camp will include extra-curricular activities that facilitate the learning process differently from in-class study because it changes cognitive, places and contexts of learning. More importantly, students are allowed to learn by themselves. They are expected to create knowledge and understanding by themselves – this is a step towards profound learning and understanding in the future which, in turn, will lead to good perceptions about ASEAN and its members," said Mrs. Waraporn.
The Deputy Secretary General of OHEC added that OHEC had already circulated a request askingThai universities to send one of their bachelor degree students for selection for the camp by 14 June 2013. In addition to Thai university students, 40 students from the Philippines, Malaysia, Cambodia, Myanmar, Singapore, Brunei, Timor Leste, Vietnam, Laos PDR and Indonesia will also take part in the activity.
Any Thai universities that wish to send their students to the ASEAN Camp can ask for further information at 02 610 5416.
