      This is a very interesting initiative that we would like to learn more about. We incorporate this learning style at our international school as well.

By Peter J. Foley, Ed.D., editor-in-chief I am suffering from education reform fatigue. I suspect there are tens of thousands of reform fatigue sufferers here in Thailand who are concerned parents, concerned students and concerned educators. And so, on March 1, 2016, when I read yet another call for education reform article in the Bangkok […]

      I understand many of the issues as I taught through these same changes for 25 years in Australia. At least they gave some autonomy to the schools as they decentralised but now the federal government is trying to take control again. In Australia many teachers (not all old) could not deal with the reforms and held on to the teacher centered classrooms with many retiring early due to lack of ability to cope. It took Australia a long time and I see many of the same issues here. Thailand educators are in for a tough ride especially as it also accelerates society change. But in the end there is only one thing worth fighting for and that is education for all.

Student-Centered Best Practices

An education for the 21st Century

IB : An education for the 21st Century by Lister W. Hannah We realise that we are living in a fast changing, increasingly complex, more interdependent and connected global community. Children entering kindergarten now (2015) will be graduating from high school in 2030 and probably entering the work force in the early to mid 2030s. […]

By Peter J. Foley, Ed.D., editor-in-chief   This month’s article limns the important innovations in higher education taking place in China. Importantly, this education revolution is based on the principles of student centered learning. Significantly for Thailand, these educational reforms echo the reforms Thai lawmakers set forth in 1999 that, sadly, have not yet been […]

As we have discussed in our previous paper, Chinese higher education in its development has been closely tied up with China’s political, economic, social and cultural development, and it has played an important role in the changes of China in every aspect. When we moved into the 21st century, China has kept its speedy development […]

      Dear Dr. Shi Jian,

      Thank you for this informative and comprehensive essay on Chinese higher education reforms. These reforms will have a positive influence not only in China but throughout the world. Thank you for giving us this valuable profile of the changes in education happening in a country that has changed economically and socially faster than any nation in the history of the world.
      All best wishes,
      Jack

Yes, there are struggles in terms of education reform in Thailand, and yes, there are concerns that the results of Pisa and O-Net exams show Thai students’ poor academic […]

      Student-centered learning is both a mind-set and culture within higher education institutions. Years of research on the learning process have shown us that the transmission of knowledge from teachers to learners is less effective than an approach to teaching and learning that involves students directly in the production of knowledge, and transforms students’ perceptions and understandings by empowering them to apply knowledge in their own contexts.
