Welcome to the Global Forum of Vietnamese Teachers’ Unions <VNTU.International>

(In a box with big character)

Education is a discipline that encompasses every other discipline and is a noble mission; it is also a profession that places many responsibilities on teachers. With responsibility comes rights, such as the right to freely exercise all civil and professional rights in order to fulfil the teachers’ mission to develop independent and critical thinking in students. (To quote here the declaration of UNESCO)

Here is a short profile of VNTU International

HỢP TÁC ĐA PHƯƠNG CHO SỰ HỒI PHỤC TOÀN CẦU

Ngày 3 tháng 2 năm 2021 | Emmanuel MacronAngela MerkelMacky SallAntónio Guterres, Charles MichelUrsula Von Der Leyen

Chúng ta không nên sợ hãi về một thế giới hậu đại dịch sẽ không giống như hiện trạng trước đây. Chúng ta nên nắm lấy và sử dụng tất cả các diễn đàn thích hợp và các cơ hội đang sẵn có để biến nó thành một thế giới tốt đẹp hơn bằng cách thúc đẩy lý tưởng của sự hợp tác quốc tế.

PARIS – Vào tháng 9 năm 2000, 189 quốc gia đã ký “Tuyên bố Thiên niên kỷ”, định hình các nguyên tắc hợp tác quốc tế cho một kỷ nguyên mới của sự tiến bộ hướng tới các mục tiêu chung. Nổi lên sau Chiến tranh Lạnh, chúng tôi tự tin…

Why qualify content is important in the digital era ?

I am learning a lot on how to improve my blogging technique.

Am learning everyday something new and innovative too, simply by watching, and listening to what others say on Youtube, LinkedIn and other Ửodpress bloggers.

I noticed that quality content shows that you respect your audience and readers with information that is relevant to your mission statement. Contextualising content to serve a community requires not only theoretical knowledge but also ground research of the context of the niche market, expressed in a language that facilitates interaction between the readers and the blogger.

In fact, timely information is essential for readers who need answers to their question in oder to make a decision. Specific information in context provides more insight to help problem-solving dilemma. In-depth information requires background research and analysis on data collected to propose a sound recommendation.

Communication is most effective if the reporting style and content fit the needs of a given audience. It is even more effective if the language barriers are lifted.

So in addressing the needs of Vietnamese-speaking educators, I have adapted the content in Vietnamese.

Thank you and don’t forget to subscribe to hocmba.degree “Trang Hoc MBA Online” for tips on pre-MBA English learning, published in Vietnamese.

Raj Chetty có ý tưởng nhằm giới thiệu với sinh viên về nhập môn kinh tế học, ý tưởng này có thể thay đổi lĩnh vực kinh tế học – và xã hội.

Nếu Harvard có một khóa học nổi tiếng nhất thì đó là môn Kinh tế học 10 (viết tắt là Ec 10).

Lớp kinh tế học nhập môn được tin cậy cho là một trong những khóa học phổ biến nhất dành cho sinh viên đại học. Môn này thường được giảng dạy ở hội trường lớn Hogwarts, nơi hàng trăm sinh viên đang chăm chú ghi chép hoặc…

RICHARD CANTILLON, NHÀ LÝ THUYẾT TIỀN TỆ HÀNG ĐẦU CỦA THẾ KỶ XVII

Gilles Dostaler

Là người theo chủ nghĩa thế giới, nhà ngân hàng và nhà đầu cơ, Richard Cantillon tự vấn về sự khác biệt giữa giá trị sản phẩm và giá cả của chúng. Phân tích tiền tệ của ông đã làm cho ông trở thành một nhà tư tưởng hàng đầu trong thời đại ông.

Minh họa về cuộc khủng hoảng tài chính năm 1720 tại Paris. Richard Cantillon đã tiên đoán sự sụp đổ của thị trường chứng khoán gây ra bởi John Law.

Kinh tế học cũng có những đứa con bị nguyền rủa. Rosa Luxemburg bị ám sát, Friedrich List thì tự tử. Ban đầu người ta tin rằng những ngọn nến còn cháy dỡ đã thiêu rụi căn nhà ở London của nhà tài chính giàu có người Pháp gốc Ireland…

Reflecting on the Global Ethics Day

The Global Ethics Day is a project initiated by the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs with detailed agenda under this link: https://globalethicsday.org

We are collecting for you some posts in relation within the Vietnamese Teachers Unions (VNTU) Community. Have a good day.

Singapore Statement on Research Integrity

Integrity is the practice of being honest and showing consistent and uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles and values. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one’s actions. Integrity can stand in opposition to hypocrisy, in that judging with the standards of integrity involves regarding internal consistency as a virtue, and suggests that parties holding within themselves apparently conflicting values should account for the discrepancy or alter their beliefs. The word integrity evolved from the Latin adjective integer, meaning whole or complete. In this context, integrity is the inner sense of “wholeness” deriving from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character. As such, one may judge that others “have integrity” to the extent that they act according to the values, beliefs, and principles they claim to hold.

Here is a useful document on “Singapore Statement on Research Integrity” for your reading.

Have a good day,

Quoted from “A Guide to Thesis Writing That Is a Guide to Life by Hua Hsu”

Browsing through my research blog that I used as desktop during my PhD studies, I rediscover this interesting article by author Hua Shu, which I wish to share it with you here.

After my graduation, I have also attempted to reflect on the purpose of writing in my series “Why write a thesis?” Published on SBI Learning Center.

My post-doc activities at Vietnam Hoc Institute will focus on building up a curriculum in Vietnamese studies to serve the Vietnamese learning community on issues related to publication and teaching ethics.

The Vietnam Ethic series is now under planning, in partnership with Globethics.net Publications, supported by Prof. Dr. Christoph Stückelberger, Founder and President, Dr Ignace Haaz, Managing Editor.

My contribution will be as volume editor of two titles: 1) Vietnam in transition, 30 years later… , followed by 2) Vietnam: Lessons for the 21st Century.

Wish me good luck!

Hi All Aspiring Research Candidates,

I just wonder how long – or how short – a thesis should be. A quick search gave me this result which ends up in yet another note (just for my failing memory, but good for my methodology of research, that is to repeat to yourself brilliant ideas and quote them appropriately, that is ALL that matters):

http://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/a-guide-to-thesis-writing-that-is-a-guide-to-life

Quoted from “A Guide to Thesis Writing That Is a Guide to Life by Hua Hsu”

In “How to Write a Thesis,” Umberto Eco walks students through the craft and rewards of sustained research.

“How to Write a Thesis,” by Umberto Eco, first appeared on Italian bookshelves in 1977. For Eco, the playful philosopher and novelist best known for his work on semiotics, there was a practical reason for writing it. Up until 1999, a thesis of original research was required of every student pursuing the Italian…
