In collaboration with External Linkages and International Affairs (ELIA), the College of Education (CEd) formally concluded the month-long International Practice Teaching Program (IPTP) for five students of Universitas Pendidikan Ganesha (UNDIKSHA) at the Farmers’ Training Hall on 9 March.

In her welcome remarks, Dr. Claire Anne A. Olivares, CEd Dean, acknowledged the role of internationalization of teacher education programs in the holistic development of future teachers. “During their (interns) brief stay, our practice teachers experienced academic as well as cultural immersions which are crucial in their preparation as globally competent and culturally-responsive educators,” Dr. Olivares stressed.

The students from Undiksha namely: Madhu Sri Devi, Wahida Syfa Maryam, Qolbuku Iqrar Al-hijrah, Ni Luh Ayu Ardi Lestari, and Ni Luh Putu Eka Swandewi Ariani also presented their outputs and accomplishments and expressed their gratitude to their cooperating teachers and supervisors, and Dr. Yolanda S. Guillermo, Director of Extension and Training, who housed and assisted them throughout their 28-day practicum at TAU.

During the said sharing, Ms. Ariani reported on her teaching journey and the realizations she had while working at the TAU Laboratory School (LS). “I now know that teaching is not just how to apply strategies but also how to improve the school so that the learning process can be more meaningful.”

Meanwhile, Prof. Putu Ayu Prabawati Sudana, Chair of UNDIKSHA’s IPTP, expressed her appreciation of TAU’s hosting of UNDIKSHA trainees via Zoom and wished to continue the partnership with TAU. She then proceeded to propose for the continuation of IPTP between TAU and UNDIKSHA in 2024. “We also hope that in the future we will welcome TAU students at UNDIKSHA,” Prof. Sudana added.

The affair which showcased cultural performances from UNDIKSHA delegates and LS teachers was attended by Dr. Arlene V. Tomas, OIC Vice President for Academic Affairs, who represented Dr. Max P. Guillermo, TAU President, Dr. Ma. Asuncion G. Beltran, Vice President for Research, Extension, and Training, Ms. Karen A.
