Celebrating WOMEN IN Education

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 6:30 PM
Stamford University Asoke Campus, Exchange Tower



Southeast Asia is developing fast. A hub of activity, creation and learning, the education sector is relied upon to equip both young and adult learners to live in this changing world. How do we as educators ensure that the content of our courses and curriculums are relevant to our pupils? How do educators give students the necessary skills for success in this fast moving 21st century? What are those skills?


Regular Tickets 15 February 2016 500 THB



Join us for a discussion with some of Bangkok’s top female educators and experts in the field as they share their experience and talk about the future of education particularly in Southeast Asia.

The changing nature of education will be discussed along with the specific skill sets needed in the 21st century. The focus on more experiential learning and hands on approaches will be touched upon, as will the involvement of technology in education and the role of the teacher.

This event is open to anyone currently working in education or interested in the field. Men are encouraged to attend and we welcome your input into the discussion!
