Education

Overview

ASEF's work in Education

Facilitate education collaboration between youth, students, teachers & educators, higher education & EdTech experts with policy makers across Asia and Europe.

Education is one of ASEF’s key thematic areas. In this field, we connect multiple stakeholders across both regions. Through policy dialogues, capacity building and the creation of bi-regional networks, we contribute to innovation in the formal and non-formal education sector and towards the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Agenda2030.

Education projects promote inclusive & equitable access across all education sectors and engage civil society and government stakeholders in interdisciplinary, technology-driven and lifelong learning opportunities to enhance quality education.

Further, we facilitate a structured dialogue between young people and decision-makers. ASEF’s education projects are part of the ASEM Education Process and their outcomes feed into the agenda of the ASEM Education Ministers’ Meetings (ASEMMEs).

Teaching & Learning

Bringing together Teachers from Secondary & Vocational Schools for teacher capacity building and collaboration between the 2 regions.

Higher Education & Education Policy

Working with Higher Education Researchers, Managers, Policymakers & Student Organisations to facilitate the exchange of good practices and inform policies through evidence and policy dialogues.

Youth

Offering non-formal education opportunities through capacity building trainings and collaboration, as well as bringing the voice of youth to decision-makers.

OUR PROGRAMMES

The ASEF Classroom Network Project brings together Teachers from Secondary & Vocational Schools for teacher capacity building and collaboration between the 2 regions. The 16th ASEF Classroom Network project in 2023 was a hybrid project and is took place both online and on-site in Ljubljana, Slovenia throughout 2023. It aimed to engage a diverse group of intergenerational participants on the topic of “Leading Change: Digital Transformation of Education in the Era of AI” – both secondary school teachers, as well as academics from Faculties of Education.

The ASEF Regional Conference on Higher Education (ARC) is our flagship project in this area, and Official Dialogue Partner of the ASEM Education Ministers. Last year we launched a research on “ASEM Higher Education Mapping: Working towards the SDGs” that explores national policies and university practices contributing to the SDGs, and conducted Policy Dialogues with Policy-makers, Higher Education Managers and Student Representatives on the report. 

The ASEF Higher Education Innovation Laboratories (ASEFInnoLab) project series is bringing together university managers to exchange knowledge, good practices and build new networks to take their work to the next level. Recent editions were focusing on “Universities Role in Teaching Artificial Intelligence (AI) Skills and Entrepreneurship”.

Our flagship project is the ASEF Young Leaders Summit (ASEFYLS), focusing on leadership capacity building and youth collaboration in Asia and Europe. Most recent edition of this project was focusing on Leadership & Society 5.0.
