Abstract

This research aimed to explore the experiences of instructors and learners in vocational education at community learning centers in Cambodia during the pandemic of Covid-19. The samples of this study were instructors and learners who have been involved closely in their academic conduction. The research instrument was the in-depth interview form which was examined by five intellectual experts. The researcher employed the component analysis to analyze the data. The findings of this study revealed the following: Learning conduction of community learning centers in Cambodia during Covid-19 consists of 3 types: 1) Onsite learning management of vocational education, instructors had to limit the number of learners for each class. It was because learners had kept their distance during the educational performance. 2) Distant learning management of vocational education uses online learning platforms such as National Khmer TV, National Khmer Radio, MoEYS Learning Application, and some other social media to conduct education performance. The digital literacy and digital accessibilities were issued and faced for instructors and learners. And 3) On-hand learning management of vocational education, instructors had to find the needs and conduct learning programs for specific targets. In contrast, learners had to integrate learning programs themselves. This study offers several directions to profound implications for future vocational education studies in Cambodia. Furthermore, it may help Cambodia solving the problem of academic conduction, thereby contributing experiences of facilitating and learning to support technical and strategic vocational education for the future development in Cambodia.
