TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Six high schools in the Malaysian state of Sabah and five universities in Taiwan signed an agreement to link up and design courses together, reports said Tuesday (May 3).
The project will focus on information technology, cooperation between academia and business, and classes related to cooking and baking, Radio Taiwan International (RTI) reported. Teacher training and advice on career development will also feature prominently in the exchanges, according to the Taiwan office in Malaysia.
The schools in Sabah will describe their present situation and their needs before the colleges and institutes in Taiwan respond by offering concrete measures to improve education, officials said.
The initiative for the cooperation plan was launched by an association of students from Sabah eager to adapt the progress they witnessed in Taiwan’s education system for the benefit of students in their home region.
