As a pioneer in training and research and with competitive strengths in multi-disciplinary education, Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU) has mapped the innovation in teaching activities for the period of 2019 – 2025 with a focus on learning from the international experience.
In that spirit, on May 3, 2019, VNU in collaboration with University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland, held the conference “Sharing experiences in innovation of teaching methods and technology by entrepreneurial approach”. Participating in the program were VNU staff and lecturers, expected disseminators of innovative, creative thinking and entrepreneurial spirit to students.
At the conference, specialists from UCD shared their experiences with the participants and the participants themselves took part in innovation and creativity activities within VIBE project.
