Semarang – A total of 200 primary school teachers from Kota Semarang participated in Customized Course on Joyful Learning in Mathematics Education. The event was organized on 24-27 February 2020 at Plaza Hotel Semarang.
Customized Course on Joyful Learning in Mathematics Education was the third programme conducted by SEAQiM in collaboration with Education Office of Kota Semarang in the beginning of 2020.
