     On 22 November 2022, Assoc. Prof. Dr.Chayaporn Wattanasiri, President of Mae Fah Luang University delivered the keynote speech in the session of “Digital Economy Enhancing Integrated Development of Industry and Education in China-ASEAN” via online platform.

     The 5th Kunming Forum on Education Cooperation in South and Southeast Asia was held in a hybrid form (onsite in Kunming and online platform). The forum was hosted by Yunnan Provincial Department of Education, organised by Yunnan Education Association for International Exchange in collaboration with Yunnan Minzu University and Yunnan Vocational College of Transportation. More than 200 experts and delegates from governments, universities and educational organisations in South and Southeast Asian countries discussed the new direction and new model for China-ASEAN industry-education integration and transportation vocational education cooperation in South and Southeast Asia.

     In her speech, Assoc. Prof. Dr.Chayaporn Wattanasiri share some experiences implemented at Mae Fah Luang University. As the digital economy, accelerated by the COVID-19, requires a revolution of talent, capital and workforce, it is both a challenge and opportunity where industry and education sectors need to cooperate and co-create future workforces who possess cognitive competence, social and emotional competence matched with technological skills. 

     In an attempt to better equip students with the skills needed in the digital economy, Mae Fah Luang University has promoted university-industry collaboration in three main areas which are (1) cooperative and work integrated education; (2) professional development; and (3) digital university. Mae Fah Luang University has established partnerships with various companies in different industries to help foster students to integrate what they learned in the class with real-world practice while developing skills that meet the actual needs of industry. In addition, MFU has integrated digital technologies into management, operation, services, activities and education to provide interactive learning experiences and make the organisation run more efficiently.
