SEAMEO LECTURE SERIES

Background

As an organisation that has its mandate to nurture human capacities and explore peoples’ fullest potential, the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organisation (SEAMEO) maintains its work and aspirations for development with peoples of the region to make lives better in various fields of education, science, and culture. As such, SEAMEO Secretariat has initiated the SEAMEO Lecture Series in March 2017 as an effort to leverage the capacity of the people of Southeast Asia. In parallel, it has also introduced stakeholders to the modern tool for education delivery.
SEAMEO Lecture Series is a series of online lectures and training programmes for policy makers, educators, practitioners, researchers, school administrators, lecturers, teachers, and students in Southeast Asian countries. The free-of-charge classes are facilitated via online-platforms, specifically WebEx and MOOCS, and hosted and managed by the SEAMEO Secretariat. The sessions are carried out by experts from SEAMEO Regional Centres, external/partner organisations, and highly committed lecturers and trainers with relevant academic qualifications.

The number of sessions varies depending on the topic and lecturer. Some topics are single session long, while others are training programmes and have multiple sessions.

The SEAMEO Lecture Series primarily supports the 7th Priority Area of SEAMEO; “Adopting a 21st Century Curriculum”.

Objectives

  1. Develop capacity and provide up-to-date knowledge in various academic areas to the Southeast Asian community at all levels.
  2. Provide access to knowledge for individuals and educational institutions in Southeast Asia, given by SEAMEO Regional Centers and Partner Organisations and a variety of lecturers through information exchange by utilising the latest information and communication technology (ICT);
  3. Strengthen partnership and networking of SEAMEO Regional Centres, stakeholders, educational institutions, communities, and other development agencies who will contribute to the implementation of this programme.

SEAMEO Lecture Series Highlights

  1. Collaboration with External/Partner Organisations
    While the majority of topics were conducted with SEAMEO Centres, many were carried out in collaboration with non-SEAMEO organizations such as UNESCO IICBA, Princess Maha Chakri Award Foundation, The Teachers’ Council of Thailand, DAAD, and more.

  2. Expanding SEAMEO Lecture Series
    Aligning with the initial aim to leverage capacity for the people of Southeast Asia, the SEAMEO Secretariat has also organised a number of face-to-face and online workshops to share its knowledge with individuals in the education field. The workshop aims to teach participants how they can conduct online classes themselves. This includes creating promotional materials, advertising courses, preparing for session, moderating online session, and generating certificates. The workshop is titled SEAMEO Capacity building of Virtual Coordinators. 5 Batches have been completed; the participants include MOEC officers from Indonesia, staffs of SEAMEO Centres, Educators, and Students of Universities, Polytechnics, and Secondary Schools.

  3. Other Activities under SEAMEO Lecture Series
    SEAMEO-DAAD Lecture Series is a sub platform under SEAMEO Lecture Series. SEAMEO exclusively joined hands with DAAD to deliver online courses conducted by Alumni of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). It follows the same style of classes as its umbrella project the SEAMEO Lecture Series. All together 6 classes have been conducted under SEAMEO-DAAD Lecture Series.

  4. List of Past Topics under SEAMEO Lecture Series 2017 - 2018
    There have been 30 Lecture and Training topics conducted from March 2017 to March 2018 under SEAMEO Lecture Series and SEAMEO-DAAD Lecture Series.
