On May 26, 2020, the Delegates from German Embassy in Vietnam – Dr Sebastian Paust, First Counsellor, Head of Development Cooperation, German Embassy in Hanoi, Ms Helene Paust, First Secretary, Deputy Head of Development Cooperation, German Embassy in Hanoi), together with Dr Juergen Hartwig, Director of the Programme “Reform of TVET in Viet Nam" visited the College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI) to get an overview of the activities within the frame of the College's technical and financial cooperation programme. Besides the first time in September 2018, this is the second time the German Embassy delegation has visited the College.
Teachers from LILAMA 2 and Bac Ninh getting advanced with knowledge and skills in CNC and E-learning
During the period from 20.08 to 05.09.2019 at LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2), German Expert – Mr. Hartmut Stein has conducted the further training in “Development and Implementation from cost and marketing effective CNC training projects using E-learning media and methods” for twelve teachers from LILAMA 2 and Bac Ninh College of Industry (Bac Ninh).
The training course focused on:
- Developing and planning marketing effective and resource-saving CNC projects under consideration of technical, ecological and economic aspects and feasibility
- Systematising networked topics CAD-CAM-CNC comprehensibly and purposefully
- Selecting, standardising and applying multimedia (hardware and software) presentation techniques, e-learning for lesson plan and implementation according to requirements
- Using open source and low-priced software tools
- Using vector programs / design programs
- Designing contours or engravings
Mr. Cap Trong Ba, teacher from Bac Ninh College said how proud he was with the acquired knowledge and skills that he gained from this course “Thanks to this training, I can effectively use image recording, video recorder and simulation tools to design and document lessons. Moreover, with my knowledge and skill, I can bring remarkable benefits to the educational process at my College”.
Mr. Le Tuyen Giao, Vice-Dean of Mechanics Faculty at LILAMA 2, positively stated, “My presence in this training course will truly bring significant advantages to LILAMA 2 where I can convey knowledge and experience to my students.” Looking back at various practice-oriented projects, e.g. Memo holder (engraver), whistle and bottle opener, which were provided with a personal, machine-made engraving, he added “What I have learned and created through this course is very interesting and helpful, for example, designed contours or engravings which can be produced by CNC turning with driven tools on workpiece front and lateral surfaces or also on CNC milling machines”.
Not only focusing on Learning-by-Doing, the participants were also trained on determining safety deficiencies and malfunctions of the CNC machines and to document their work. Using energy and materials under economical and environmentally friendly aspects were part of the training. It can be concluded that the training course with design, production for projects, and knowledge-broadening with CNC machines is greatly profitable to all participants.
This training course was held within the component “Support for Centres of Excellence for TVET” as part of the Vietnamese-German “Programme Reform of TVET in Viet Nam”. The programme is financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) together with the Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA).
