DESPITE the local learning sector facing unprecedented challenges of the times, the 2021 Philippine Education Conference (PhilEd) will be held from December 1 to 4, with “Reimagining Schools and Learning Beyond Covid-19” as the theme.
The 2021 PhilEd Conference will highlight the need for the Philippine education system’s transition from school recovery and readiness to school preparedness and resilience, which will ensure student-learning continuity during disruptive situations such as the pandemic.
The conference will have presentations and discussions running the gamut of current issues in education. Sessions on teaching and learning will include updates on the K-12 curriculum, reports on teacher-education institutions, as well as the development of both school leadership and critical feeling in today’s digital era. Meanwhile, sessions on standards and competencies will cover professional-licensure exams, the Philippine Credit Transfer System, and work force upskilling.
For sessions geared on the future of schools, attendees can look forward to updates on government assistance, discussions on protecting student and educator health, an exploration of smart schools and data-based decision-making, as well as dialogues on future thinking. All sessions are designed to engage schools to take active roles in pursuing improvement of the Philippine education system.
Professor Paul Glewwe of Distinguished McKnight University-University of Minnesota, who will give the keynote; Professor Tan Eng Chye, who is the president of National University-Singapore; Duy Tan University’s Dr. Hang Le; Marshall Cavendish Education Singapore’s Dr. Charles Chew; Nanyang Technological University’s Jerome Lo; and Professor Jal Mehta of Harvard University are this year’s resource persons.
