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.

KẾ HOẠCH TRIỆT ĐỂ NHẰM THAY ĐỔI CÁCH THỨC HARVARD GIẢNG DẠY KINH TẾ HỌC

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.

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…

World’s Teachers’ Day

I found the list of teachers days around the world and thought it could be useful for our members to consult it.

World Teachers’ Day, also known as International Teachers Day, is an international day held annually on October 5. Established in 1994, it commemorates the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, which is a standard-setting instrument that addresses the status and situations of teachers around the world. This recommendation outlines standards relating to education personnel policy, recruitment, and initial training as well as the continuing education of teachers, their employment, and working conditions.

World Teachers’ Day aims to focus on “appreciating, assessing and improving the educators of the world” and to provide an opportunity to consider issues related to teachers and teaching.

To celebrate World Teachers’ Day, the UNESCO and Education International (EI) mounts a campaign each year to help give the world better understanding of teachers and the role they play in the development of students and society. They partner with the private sector such as media organizations to achieve this purpose. The campaign focus on different themes for every year.

For instance, “Empowering Teachers” is the theme for 2017. This was the year World Teachers’ Day commemorated the 20th anniversary of the 1997 UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Higher-Education Teaching Personnel, bringing the sometimes-neglected area of teaching personnel at Higher Education institutions into the conversation about the status of teachers.

For 2018, the UNESCO adopted the theme: “The right to education means the right to a qualified teacher.” It commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) and serves as a reminder that the right to education cannot be realized without trained and qualified teachers.

The UNESCO cites that everyone can help by celebrating the profession, by generating awareness about teacher issues and by ensuring that teacher respect is part of the natural order of things. Schools and students, for instance, prepare an occasion for teachers during this day. More than 100 countries commemorate World Teachers’ Day and each holds its own celebrations such as the case of India, which has been commemorating Teachers’ Day every 5th September.

As the day usually falls during Australian school holidays, Australian states and territories celebrate on the last Friday of October each year instead. In 2020, it will be celebrated on Friday 30 October.

Found on wikipedia.org, the information is a contribution from many sources, but can give a good idea for the topic. You can find out more on the link below.

As for the VNTU (short name of “Global Federation of Vietnamese Teachers’ Unions”) we are starting our activities and will be more active in sharing news on Education to our members around the World. For the moment, the more active chapters are in the USA and Switzerland.

We hope to welcome more from other Vietnamese Teachers Associations or Groups in other countries to this Association and start celebrating the World Teacher’s Day in a more festive mood.

Let’s keep in touch.

Welcome Message

The Vietnamese Teacher’s Union (VNTU) was founded by a small group of teachers based in Vietnam.

The original intention is to provide a platform for teachers to reflect on the working environment at school, and to express their concern on ethical issues within the institution such as misconduct in the studies, bullying in class, and poor management at work.

There was also a need to create a positive impact on the behaviour of students among themselves, and towards teaching staff, by example and by dialogue.

At the time of globalisation, more than ever, education is the key to help Vietnamese in their integration to the international job market. Knowledge, skills and attitude are key components in the learning process, and the role model of teachers are important in shaping the students future behaviour in life and at work.

The founders of the Vietnamese Teachers’ Union aim to create a model of good governance to help the education sector improve the learning environment through exchanging with their peers across the country and beyond.

The Global Federation of Vietnamese Teachers’ Unions (VNTU) project was initiated and supported by the Institute for Viet-US and Globalisation Studies (USA), to reach out to all Vietnamese teachers worldwide. The mission is to rebuild a learning environment that can bring back the Vietnamese values and spirit to the education sector at home. We hope, by doing so, to help reduce violence and cheating at school, and reduce the sources of conflicts among a growing numbers of victims of this degradation.

As of October 2020, the VNTU community is reaching out to the world through its Global Office in Geneva, with the support of the Association Pont-du-Pacifique Les Amis du Vietnam, and the Vietnam Hoc Institute, both based in Switzerland. Through the training programs aimed at capacity building of Vietnamese teachers, in collaboration with a number of international organisations, namely Globethics.net Foundation, Agape Foundation and our training partners, namely SBI Training Solutions, Au Lac Vietnamese Language School, ABS Institute, and many more, we hope to contribute to the Vietnamese communities of teachers unions worldwide some learning resources to attain the goals and objectives of the Charter of the VNTU.

We welcome any good proposal or contribution to our efforts in making the world a better place to live. Join us to contribute to this Forum.
