Researchers from Bhutan visit the School of Education
Ms Tsering Y. Nidup, Lecturer in Paro College of Education, Royal University of Bhutan; Dr Kezang Sherab, Dean of Research, Paro College of Education, Royal University of Bhutan and Dr Matthew Schuelka, Lecturer in School of Education, University of Birmingham.
The visit from the Bhutanese researchers is part of a British Academy-funded International Partnership and Mobility Grant titled, “Exploring the full potential of education: Non-cognitive skills, inclusivity, and happiness in Bhutan and England”. This project is a collaboration between the School of Education, University of Birmingham and the Paro College of Education, Royal University of Bhutan.
The partnership and mobility grant explores the issue of how schools in both England and Bhutan currently support and conceptualise non-cognitive skills, happiness, and inclusive learning outcomes. Workshops will be conducted in schools for practitioners to enable early-career researchers to enhance research capacity and skills, and support the development of a doctoral programme in Gross National Happiness Education in Bhutan.
