Dr. Ratha Chea, dean of graduate school and #INOWASIA project manager at NUBB, presented the research activities in the Graduate School of NUBB and introduced the Water oriented Living Lab (#WoLL)- Laboratory of Freshwater Ecology (ECOFRESH) supported by Erasmus+ INOWASIA project; particularly, the integration of laboratory based education (LBE) concept in the ECOFRESH research team.
Dr. Chea accompanied the JICA delegation to visit NUBB labs including WoLL-ECOFRESH Lab. Meanwhile, Dr. Chea underlined the key contribution of all Erasmus+ CHBE projects to JICA delegation, including INOWASIA project, in Cambodian higher education improvement.
The collaborative framework of Erasmus+ project contribute to improve not only the content of teaching, but also the transformation of traditional teaching method to modern competence based teaching, e.g. the integration of Problem Based Learning (#PBL), and facilities to improve the quality of teaching-learning and R&D services. More importantly, the university-industry collaboration is one of core elements in the Erasmus+ CBHE projects to ensure the sustainability of the education programs after the end of projects.
