This 2nd Regional Advisory Board meeting discussed several important issues for furthering the further promotion and enhancement of the operation and activities of WACE and WACE-ISO@SUT. Four key events and activities will take place as a result of this whole day discussion, including

  1. ASEAN Cooperative and Work-Integrated Education (CWIE) Network Establishment Forum organized by Thailand’s Office of Higher Education Commission (OHEC), Thai Association for Cooperative Education (TACE), WACE-ISO@SUT, and possibly Universiti Utara Malaysia, scheduled late 2014
  2. WACE-ISO@SUT International Workshop in Thailand organized as a part of SUT’s 25th Anniversary celebrations in 2015
  3. Collaborations between WACE ISO@SUT and WACE ISO at University West, Sweden in terms of both promotion of international CWIE between the two regions and research collaborations of the two universities’ PhD Programmes in Cooperative Education
  4. International CWIE Pilot Project between WACE-ISO@SUT, Western Digital (Thailand), and NPO Japan Forum for Work-Integrated Learning, which will see an exchange of CWIE students between Japan and Thailand within this year

The meeting ended with an experience sharing session on ‘International CWIE from Western Digital Thailand, Co., Ltd. and Other Countries’, in which International CWIE students from Canada, Indonesia, and South Africa, and CWIE mentors from Western Digital (Thailand) shared and exchanged views on various issues on international CWIE.

It can be said that this 2nd WACE-ISO@SUT Regional Advisory Board Meeting, though a small one, is grand in scope and will have an impact that goes beyond Asia and the Pacific Region. SUT is once again acknowledged and hailed as a true leader in international CWIE in the world.
