Project Summary

In keeping with the pace of economic integration and accelerating globalization over the past decade, needs for quality education and innovative Human Resources Development (HRD) have increased on societal, national and international level. Moreover, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is changing the nature of jobs, which may result in declined employment in some areas.

To cope with such challenges, APEC economies have been steadily developing education policies and curricula as well as accumulating innovative experiences. In this connection, there is a need among APEC economies to share innovative experiences, which have been instrumental in providing tangible achievements. APEC Education Strategy, which was endorsed at the 6th APEC Education Ministerial Meeting (AEMM 2016) has made educational innovation a major goal. In order to enhance this goal, the Republic of Korea seeks to initiate the APEC Community for Education Innovation: Joint Research and Implementation to Enhance Innovative Practices in Education and HRD (APEC CEDI). APEC CEDI will serve as a forum for member economies to conduct joint research on promising innovative educational practices, and also to find practical application in public-private sectors.

APEC CEDI activities may include the following: 1) Joint Research between APEC member economies on promising innovative educational practices, 2) Web Site Operation and Management, and 3) APEC CEDI Pilot Models. APEC CEDI will invite participants from private, public, and academic sectors, including innovative entrepreneurs, policy-makers, and education specialists, as recommended by member economies.

The first activity of participating economies which will be members of APEC CEDI is joint-research on innovative practices on specific topics. The topics may include improving the use of educational and technological capabilities in teaching and learning processes, promoting Science, Technology and Innovation in education and pedagogical practices, and promoting government – industry – academia collaboration for R&D and Innovation, etc., which are demanded by member economies. The second activity will be the sharing of joint research results, information, and experience for implementing innovative practices. For this purpose, the APEC CEDI Web Site may be utilized. The third activity is to design APEC CEDI Pilot Models, which would be practical education models for member economies. These models will be developed based on the joint research and experience, recent theories and innovative ideas, best practices from members and elsewhere, and other references. 

APEC CEDI will be implemented according to the following timeline:

⦁ Jul 2017: Invite the CEDI Research Group for joint research

⦁ Aug 2017: Select research topics

⦁ Sep 2017: Host an International Workshop to discuss the contents and roles

⦁ Sep 2017 - May 2018: Conduct Joint Research

⦁ Spring 2018: Report and share the research result at EDNET

⦁ Jun to Dec 2018: Plan the CEDI Pilot Model Action Plan

⦁ Jan to Nov 2019: Implement APEC CEDI Pilot Models

⦁ Dec 2019: Evaluate and share the feedback 

The results will collect, create, and analyze innovative education and HRD practices in APEC economies at both the micro and macro levels. APEC CEDI will narrow gaps in policy, knowledge, capabilities among members and enhance the capabilities of individuals toward the challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
