National and regional policy learning: Asia-Pacific: Teacher education and standards

As part of its new main line of action on national and regional policy learning, The Teacher Task Force is co-organising a series of workshops for the Asia Pacific Region with the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organisation (SEAMEO), in cooperation with Philippines. The first workshop will be held on 1 July, followed by a second workshop in October/November. Between the two workshops, additional reflection by the TTF Secretariat and the regional Steering Committee members will take place to verify assumptions and refine regional policy learning needs for the second workshop.

In particular, the workshops aim to foster exchange and discussion in support of holistic and comprehensive teacher policy development as illustrated in the Teacher Policy Development Guide (TPDG) and its nine interconnected dimensions as a framework. This workshop will focus on common policy learning need related to teacher education and teacher standards including issues related to capacity building, teacher training, qualifications, licensing, and its relationship to the professionalisation of the teaching career framed in regional framework to establish teacher standards. In addition to this, countries demonstrated an interest in the ICT dimension of teacher education including ICT skills and pedagogies for remote and distance teaching. They also demonstrated learning needs related to social dialogue and school leadership.

Country focal points and deputies, including both country and organisational members, will be invited to the Asia Pacific regional workshop. Other key partners with regional remits will be consulted and invited to actively participate as they are familiar with regional policy learning needs.

For more information contact Thomas, Yael (y.thomas@unesco.org) or Algohani, Maram (m.algohani@unesco.org).
