Global Connections

 Our Domestic and Global Connections


PCE is committed to building a rich network of meaningful educational partnerships in teaching, research and student mobility aimed to promote cross-cultural understanding and mutual respect, exchange of knowledge and experience, and global citizenship. Our tie-ups with external teacher education institutions and other organizations are guided by our core belief in and commitment to the need for mutual respect and benefit and friendship based on trust. Pursued through letters of agreement, memoranda of understanding and other pathways, we have a wide network of collaborations with institutions in Bhutan and outside in Asia, Australia, Europe and the United States.   


Our domestic and global linkages help us and our partners to engage in mutual learning, co-creation of knowledge, and learning from each other’s best practice scenarios especially in teaching, student learning, research and cultural exchange. These efforts collectively contribute towards developing and raising the quality of teacher education curricula, pedagogical practices and the quality of student learning.
