Project Summary

High-quality basic education is the key to the building of human resources and development of economy and society. Since 1992 when the 1st APEC Education Ministerial Meeting was held, research on educational policies, teaching methods and teacher quality has been one of the priorities in educational cooperation across APEC economies. Since the beginning of the 21st century, APEC economies have strengthened reforms in basic education. Based on its cultural and educational tradition, each economy has adopted unique institutions, policies and reform measures concerned. There is an urgent demand from the APEC economies to learn from each other and to identify best practices, in order to facilitate reforms in basic education. By organizing seminars participated by important stakeholders of education, the project will provide a platform for educational policymakers and practitioners in the Asia Pacific Region to exchange their experiences and perspectives concerning reforms and quality of basic education.

Planned activities:

Two seminars will be organized in Shanghai in November 2016. Shanghai Normal University which chaired the PISA 2009, PIAS 2012 and TALIS+2015 programs in Shanghai will host the seminars.

Each seminar will last for about one week. In addition to experiences of PISA and TALIS, a series of topics will be discussed, including educational administration and finance, teachers’ professional development, professional standards for head teachers, reforms in curriculum and teaching, and student evaluation.

Each seminar will have 20 participants, including educational administrators, researchers, head teachers and school faculties. Daily schedule will be organized in forms of half-day group discussion and half-day school visit.
