Background

COVID-19 remains challenging in the global community and changes the educational landscape. Educators need to be responsive and adaptive to the new challenges to maximize the learning opportunities of learners during the lock down.

We have witnessed that many learning activities have been transformed to online/flexible learning options, home schooling, and other blended learning modalities. Not only the learning modalities have been adapted, but the COVID-19 also affected the improvement of school system, communities, and individual adaptation.

This has been the general framework that guided the development of the SEAMEO Congress 2021 theme. However, SEAMEO saw the need to have a pre-Congress learning event that will jumpstart the discussion and ignite passion and interest of youth, educators, and other stakeholders/actors in Southeast Asia and beyond. Thus, this learning event, “SEAMEO Pre-Congress Lecture Series: Stories of Success >> Transformation and Innovation in the Post COVID-19 Pandemic” during March - April 2021, has been conceptualized to feature the stories of success during the COVID-19.

Presenters of this learning event are expected to give practical advice and easy-to-replicate strategies on how to address the challenges as the world is racing to inoculate everyone and shift to a new, and hopefully, better, normal.

SEAMEO intends to highlight “Stories of Success” of school/college leaders, teachers, community leaders, and students to the global community so that others may learn and get innovative ideas.

It is expected that the “Stories of Success” can be good models for educational institutions, teachers and students to learn and replicate for improvement. Moreover, as a pre-Congress event, it will help igniting new ideas and serve as valuable resources for discussion during SEAMEO Congress 2021.

Objectives:

  • To provide opportunities for educational institutions, communities, teachers and students to share “Stories of Success” which they have applied for educational institutions, communities, teaching/learning modalities, and self-improvement during COVID-19.
  • To learn and explore good practices from the Stories of Success shared by educational leaders, teachers, and students
  • To serve as a Pre-Congress event to equip the audiences with new knowledge and ideas prior to joining the SEAMEO Congress 2021.

Learning Sessions

The SEAMEO Pre-Congress Lecture Series will be conducted by using video clips recorded by the educators, students, and other stakeholders which will be broadcasted through SEAMEO Secretariat’s YouTube channel.
