On 27-28 October 2015, UNESCO Bangkok will be holding the Regional Meeting 2015 for the "Supporting Competency-Based Teacher Training Reforms to Facilitate ICT-Pedagogy Integration Project" to bring together key project stakeholders, international experts, and project evaluators to share and review the project’s progress and discuss next steps.This is consistent with the recommendation from the previous KFIT project (“Facilitating Effective ICT-Pedagogy Integration”) that encouraged UNESCO projects to undergo a formative project evaluation to assist the project team in reviewing and enhancing the project design.

The primary purpose of this Meeting is to provide an opportunity for the three pilot countries to exchange findings from their teacher readiness assessment exercise, country implementation progress and achievements, and share challenges and lessons learned throughout the first year of implementation. In addition, the UNESCO project team will orient the pilot countries on project activities lined up for the second year of country implementation in order to collectively identify required support and develop action plans to achieve project objectives.

The project team and pilot countries will also have opportunities to consult international experts and the project evaluators on possible adjustments to the project design. This is consistent with the recommendation from the previous KFIT project (“Facilitating Effective ICT-Pedagogy Integration”) that encouraged UNESCO projects to undergo formative project evaluation to assist the project team in reviewing and enhancing the project design.

In summary, the Meeting will provide the participants with an opportunity to:

  • take stock of the experiences and achievements of the three pilot countries in regard to developing national ICT competency standards for teachers,
  • gather feedback from the Experts’ Committee on project achievements and planned next steps,
  • discuss and concretize action plans for the second year of country implementation (i.e. operationalizing competency standards).

 

Date:  27-28 October 2015
Venue:  Radisson Blu Plaza, Bangkok, Thailand

 

Expected Outputs

By the end of the Meeting, the UNESCO Bangkok Project Team will have the following outputs:

  • documentation of the first year of pilot country implementations
  • enhanced project design and work plan
  • concrete work plans for the second year of pilot country implementations

The outputs from the Regional Meeting will be used as inputs for the project’s next steps, including the enhancement of the online Regional Guidebook and country-level activities related to competency standards adoption and operationalization.
