Our continuous efforts in Cambodia have resulted in 3 informational seminars in University of Puthisastra and Pannasastra University of Cambodia. The first 2 events were catered for students while the third one was organized especially for professors, lecturers and librarians.
22nd May 2010 marked our first Global Text event ever in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
The seminar served as a first step to introduce the school community to Global Text in particular and OERs in general. Our goal was to promote awareness on how students and professors can utilize resources on the internet to enrich their study, teaching, and research.
It was a successful and fruitful event with over 70 students from different schools in Phnom Penh attended. Most of the questions raised were on how to find books on particular subjects like psychology, IT, agriculture, etc.
This is a wonderful progress and we hope to further extend it to other schools with Sander, our new intern who is coming on board from 25th June.
