Regional Meeting 2016 "Supporting Competency-Based Teacher Training Reforms to Facilitate ICT-Pedagogy Integration Project", 1-2 December 2016, Seoul, Republic of Korea


On 1-2 December 2016, UNESCO Bangkok will be holding the Regional Meeting 2016 for the "Supporting Competency-Based Teacher Training Reforms to Facilitate ICT-Pedagogy Integration Project" that will bring together key project stakeholders, international experts, and project evaluators to share and review the project’s progress and discuss next steps.

The primary purpose of this Meeting is to provide an opportunity for the three pilot countries to share their progress and achievements, along with challenges and lessons learned throughout the two-year country implementation (2015-2016). A special session will be organized to enhance the competency-based teacher training/development curriculum that they developed, through intensive discussion and reflection with participating experts.

The second purpose is to invite the participants to review the online Guidelines and provide inputs to improve on it. Reflecting the experiences from the pilot country implementations, the enhanced version of the Guidelines will include process flows, tools, and materials that were developed and used during the country implementation workshops.

Finally, the Meeting will provide a venue for the pilot countries to present the preliminary documentations of their project experience, which will comprise Volume 2 of the aforementioned Case Study. The project team and pilot countries will also have opportunities to consult international experts and the project evaluators on plausible next steps, including but not limited to accreditation of training providers, recognition of teachers’ ICT competencies, and evaluation of the competency standards.
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 incorporating national ICT competency standards for teachers into teacher education/ training curriculum,

  • contribute to the development of the Volume 2 of case studies that will serve as a major reference for Member States,

  • provide inputs to enhance the online Guidelines, and

  • gather feedback from the Experts’ Committee on project achievements and planned next steps.
