Hanoi (VNA) - Vietnamese art teachers and students across the nation were deeply inspired by the new teaching and learning methods developed under a 10-year Danish project.

The achievements of the “Art Education in Primary school” project, implemented by the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs were announced at the project’s closing workshop in Da Nang on February 25 and 26.

The project aimed to stimulate the creative thinking and cognitive development of children through child-centred teaching methods and materials, according to the Danish Embassy’s press release.

The project was implemented in 63 provinces with a total invesment of 1.2 million USD.

The project’s key outcomes include developing learner-friendly art curricula for the primary level, building capability for more than 600 art teachers and outlining art text books.

Ambassador of Denmark to Vietnam Charlotte Laursen highlighted the positive outcomes of the project and stressed the priority of education cooperation between Denmark and Vietnam.

“Education is a clear priority in the Danish Government's growth market strategy for Vietnam. Education is also included as an important part of the Danish Vietnamese Comprehensive Partnership Agreement,” she said.

“Continued cooperation in the educational sector creates mutual benefits for Denmark and Vietnam. This lays a strong foundation for our continued and further cooperation in the future.”
