On Monday March 10, 2014, pointB held a small opening ceremony at the new Design-Thinking Center for Community Engagement located at Mawlamyine University. We were joined by Mawlamyine University Rector, Dr. Htay Aung, Heads of Faculty and the English Department. Following the ceremony, pointB kicked off its first training course — a 3-month training with 33 faculty from Mawlamyine University's English Department. This course brings together design-thinking, teaching methodology, organizational development, life skills, study skills and of course, English language. It's been a historical week at Mawlamyine University — here are some excerpts from Dr. Htay Aung's opening speech.
