At the meeting, Prof. Dr. Pham Quang Minh emphasized USSH is a leading institution in Vietnam in the methodical and systematic training of information and information science. The University's Vietnam Program for Internet and Society (VPIS) was launched to study the two-way relationship between the Internet and social life. In the academic year of 2019-2020, the University officially commenced the advanced bachelor's degree program in information management to contribute to training high-quality human resources in this field. Therefore, the University is willing to engage in common activities with Facebook such as organizing conferences, seminars and studies on the topics of relevant interest.
On behalf of Facebook APAC, Mrs. Beth Ann Lim informed that it currently implements the project "We think digital". With the support of experts and academics from across the region, the project aims to develop training courses and programs on digital and cyber topics such as critical thinking, digital citizenship, and information literacy. Facebook APAC would highly appreciate the participation of a prestigious University such as USSH in the project.
Prof.Dr Pham Quang Minh expressed his support for the project and instructed Faculty of Information-Library Science to apply as a participant. In the beginning, Facebook APAC would organize workshops to train the Faculty's lecturers on the contents of "We think digital". In the long-term, the Faculty will pick the relevant modules to be taught as an official subject in the syllabus of Information Management.
