On the 19th of April 2011 CORDE’s University for Education and Development held training on their Preparation for Social Action (PSA) curriculum for 15 of their community education tutors. The tutors that attended teach in communities across Battambang Province including Ek Phnom, Kbal Thnal, O srolao, O khchay, Koh Kralor, Kampong Seima, Kampong Thom, Kampong Chhnang, Pursat and Preah Vihear. The training was facilitated by 4 of CORDE’s PSA Coordinators including Elyssa, Sophea, Ridvan and Rithy. This training provides CORDE’s community education tutors and UniED’s Education students with additional knowledge in practical and theoretical pedagogy and guides them in the practical application of science to community development.

On 11th November 2010, UniED’s 3rd year students commenced a research project on Diversifying High Efficiency (DHE) practices by planting and cultivating different crops on a small piece of land at Teacher June Libertad’s house in Battambang. The research project ran for two and a half months, while the students followed FUNDAEC’s Preparation for Social Action Curriculum in DHE.
