Dr. Lorna D. Dino, Undersecretary for Curriculum and Instruction, DepEd

The session focuses on the issues and concerns in implementing the Grade 12 curriculum of the different SHS tracks (Academic, TVL, Sports, and Arts and Design) that will lead to the curriculum exits of the K to 12, namely college, employment, entrepreneurship, or middle level skills development, whichever is the option of the learner.

Prof. Zita Mohd Fahmi, Secretary, ASEAN Quality Assurance Network

The session focuses on the issues and concerns of schools in aligning with and implementing the qualifications frameworks in their educational delivery.

Implementation of the General Education Curriculum
Dr. Ma. Cristina D. Padolina, President, Centro Escolar University

The session focuses on how schools can effectively deliver the general education curriculum, which includes shifting to learning competency based standards; linking K to 12 competencies and the entry requirements of tertiary education; assessing the college readiness of the K to 12 graduates; and providing school-based training on content, pedagogy, and assessment that the new curriculum requires, to name a few.

School administrators will learn from the discussion of the implementation issues, challenges, strategies, and even successes as both respond to the K to 12 requirements.

PLENARY SESSION

The Formative Five: Teaching for Success in Life
Dr. Thomas R. Hoerr, Emeritus Head of School, New City School, St. Louis, Missouri, USA

Placing the Learners at the Center Through Design in Education
Dr. Jennifer Bain and Dr. Juliet Sprake, Senior Lecturers in Design Education, Goldsmiths University, London

21st Century Education is Two Paradigm Shifts Away
Dr. William Spady, Founder, Spady and Uy Center for Transformational OBE

‘Modern’ 21st Century education is still two paradigm shifts away from being truly ‘relevant’ to today’s learners. That elusive goal will be attained only after education undergoes two fundamental paradigm shifts: One from its Time-Based, factory-model, Industrial Age roots to becoming genuinely Outcome-Based; and the other when the Outcomes in that new paradigm transcend traditional classroom work and fully engage students in the life performance roles required of empowered adults in our ever-evolving global society. Dr. Spady will draw on his four-plus decades of cutting-edge experience with Transformational OBE to explain both of these shifts and give Filipino educators at all levels a fresh vision of what relevance can mean, both to them and their students.

Trends Concerning the Vocationalization of Secondary Education and Integrating TVET into Secondary Schools
Prof. Rupert Maclean, UNESCO Chair on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and Sustainable Development, College of the North Atlantic-Qatar

This presentation will examine the ongoing debate on the pros and cons of secondary education becoming more closely and explicitly related to preparing young people for the world of work. This is often referred to as the ‘vocationalization of secondary education’. The presentation will locate this discussion within the larger debate as to the relationship between secondary education and education for the world of work (with particular reference to technical and vocational education and training-TVET) and the extent to which education and schooling should emphasize skills development for employability.

CONCURRENT SESSIONS C

Creating a School Culture of Growth
Dr. Thomas R. Hoerr

Schools need to focus on preparing students to excel in life, not to just do well in school. In this workshop, Dr. Hoerr will illustrate how a school’s culture can be used to help teach the Formative Five and to prepare students to achieve in life.

Design Thinking as Transformative Educational Practice
Dr. Jennifer Bain and Dr. Juliet Sprake

Implementing the Essence and Power of ‘Real’ OBE
Dr. William Spady

Outcome-Based Education (OBE) is a powerful approach to learner success and empowerment, but its true meaning is misunderstood and misapplied in country after country. In this workshop, Dr. Spady will use his decades of cutting-edge experience with ‘real’ OBE to explain its essence, its origins, its unique paradigm, its ‘Success for All Learners’ philosophy, and its key operating principles – the driving forces that enable its implementers to expand and transform ‘The Conditions of Success’ for classrooms and institutions of all kinds. From the pioneering work of Benjamin Bloom fifty years ago to today’s pioneering breakthroughs in the Philippines, Spady will engage participants with tangible examples of how ‘real’ OBE can elevate and transform learning, curriculum, instruction, assessment, and the meaning of success itself in their classrooms, schools, and universities.

Vocationalization of Secondary Education
Prof. Rupert Maclean

This workshop will build upon ideas and examples presented in the plenary presentation, on the ‘vocationalization of secondary education’. It will discuss concrete examples within the Asia-Pacific region as to how secondary schools can most productively and effectively prepare their students for gainful employment with the world of work, with particular references to bridging academic and vocational learning. Participants will be encouraged to provide examples from their own work.
