Transforming Teaching and Learning in Asia and the Pacific: Case Studies from Seven Countries

How are our teachers teaching in schools in the Asia-Pacific region? Do their pedagogical practices meet the needs of the 21st century? What is required to change teaching and learning? Through case studies on changing pedagogical landscapes in seven countries - Fiji, Indonesia, Japan, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, the Republic of Korea, and Viet Nam - this publication reflects on these questions and explores opportunities and challenges in transforming teaching and learning.

Each chapter focuses on one country and takes a snapshot of pedagogical situations in terms of both policy and practice. While the seven countries differ greatly from each other in their historical experiences, cultures and economic and political systems, all of them have introduced similar measures to reform teaching and learning, notably to make education more ‘learner-centred’. At the same time, the seven chapters observe obstacles and difficulties in actually changing practices at the school and classroom levels, and suggest ways to facilitate the change. Through sharing these countries’ experiences, the publication will stimulate the thinking of all those interested in transforming teaching and learning that takes place in schools in their own countries.
