Theme: Immigration/Diversity/Cross-Cultural Issues
Three UMAP institutions, UKM (Malaysia), De La Salle (Philippines), and Toyo (Japan), collaborated for a joint teaching project, focusing on “Immigration, Diversity, and Cross-Cultural Issues.” The project was started on October 5th by exchanging lectures from three universities. From October 26, 108 participating from three universities, engaged in discussion for a week by using a new online system, Immerse U (Class 2 Class). The students were divided into 18 groups and discussed issues related to immigrants, overseas workers, and refugees. Then, at the final joint class on October 31st, each group engaged in creating posters that raise awareness of the human rights of those immigrants and foreign workers. It was quite an inspiring and enjoyable learning experience for students from three universities.
