Visit to Geneva

On 15 to 16 Mac 2022 I was invited by IBE UNESCO to attend a meeting in Geneva, Switzerland. The meeting was attended by approximately 30 participants from different parts of the world mainly from IBE partner universities. Besides taking stock of the partner universities’ experience in implementing the regional Diploma and Master’s programs in Curriculum, the meeting also provided the platform for inter-regional discussion on curriculum and related issues. The meeting deliberated on collaboration to leverage curriculum as the key driver for quality and equity in education.

I presented the research plan on Hybrid Learning for schools during the meeting, a regional project that will take place later of the year. On behalf of the Asia Pacific Research Association of Curriculum and Instructional Design, APRACSI, I also extended the invitation to all to attend the Asia Pacific Conference on Curriculum Studies and Instructional Designing APCCSID 2022 which will take place on 28 to 30 Oct 2022 in Hiroshima Japan.

It was a fruitful meeting and I have met many like-minded curriculum experts from around the world. Sharing with you some of the snapshots from the meeting.
