Take part in re-thinking and re-imagining education in ASEAN

Thammasat University is hosting a special symposium entitled Re-thinking Education: Re-imagining ASEAN. This symposium explores contemporary debates regarding education in the Southeast Asian region, asking what the future of education might look like, as well as identifying the role of the ASEAN community in shaping this future. While the theme clearly points to debates about the ways education in the ASEAN region might be re-thought and re-imagined, it also calls for examination of why education in ASEAN might be transformed, and what may be possible obstacles to this transformation.

Since the symposium is hosted by one of Thailand’s oldest universities with a commitment to political debate and reform, we are especially interested to contribute to the development of solutions to persistent educational challenges.

The symposium has identified a series of educational debates in the region to take as its focus. These include: equity and fairness; science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education; technology and innovation; and a number of current national and regional trends.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bangkok for what we hope will be a rich and thought-provoking symposium.

Symposium Panels

Panel 1: Equity and Inclusivity

Equity is a pressing educational issue across the Southeast Asian region. As the ASEAN community continues to develop, it is important that stakeholders question which groups receive the most benefit from national educational investments, and which groups tend to be most disadvantaged. This symposium panel will highlight a number of cases from within the region in order to stimulate further debate, reflection and research. In alignment with the symposium theme, this panel will illustrate how a concern for equity calls us to re-think the way stakeholders approach persistent educational challenges, as well as to re-imagine ASEAN’s purpose and potential within these debates.

Panel 2: STEM Education

The development of a high quality STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) workforce is an important component in achieving national economic prosperity, innovation and addressing global and regional environmental concerns. This panel will explore interdisciplinary approaches to STEM education in the Southeast Asian region. Drawing together perspectives on 21st century education, this panel hopes to foreground both the present opportunities for STEM approaches, as well as gesture to what the future of STEM education might look in the ASEAN community.

Panel 3: Education, Information and Technology

The rapid transformation of information and technology has had profound impacts on the education sector globally. Educators have exciting opportunities to re-imagine what spaces for and modes of learning look like now, and into the future. While this change has opened many opportunities, it is not without risk. Young people need to develop media and information literacies in order to discern the reliability of information, and develop an awareness of the potentially long-term impacts of sharing online.  This panel will explore some of the consequences of rapid information/technological change in the ASEAN region and illustrate future trends for research, policy and practice.

Panel 4: The Future of Education in ASEAN

What are the most crucial issues in re-thinking ASEAN and re-imagining education within and across ASEAN countries? How might we, as educators, deal with such issues and challenges in a future where political, economic and environmental situations appear less stable? This panel will explore different scenarios of the possible future of education in this region and ways in which we might move forward together.
