In the case of English, for instance, we may seek the assistance of other country or institution outside of the consortium. Deakin University in Melbourne and Curtin University in Perth, Australia have expressed their willingness to participate and share their experiences in the training of ESL/EFL teachers at these universities using dual degree programs. Agreement for dual or double degree programs must be made between the consortium and these universities in Australia. These universities can send native speakers to teach and supervise to insure the quality of programs within the members of the consortium prior to sending our students to these universities in Australia.
University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, Hawaii in the US through East-West Center has also shown similar interest in training ESL and EFL teachers and in training educators from the region. We need to train our lecturers and professors to a country where English is spoken as native language hence they will be able to understand the language culturally, contextually, referentially and ideationally since they will be staying in a native setting for quite sometimes (at least for a period of two semesters). Faculty exchange will be conducted to save time and bring the native speakers into a consortium system to improve the quality of our own Center of Excellence in English education.
Germany, a country known for her well-designed vocational training and development programs, might be a good partner to share her experience with us in further developing our vocational teacher training programs as far as academic qualifications are concerned. DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) in collaboration with interested German universities can be one of the partnersfor developing cooperation and for collaborating our programs with this country. DAAD has its representatives in Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Manila and other countries to serve and develop bilateral co-operations between Germany and countries in Asia-Pacific region.
