The Vietnam National Institute of Educational Sciences (VNIES) and NISSEM jointly hosted a ground-breaking international conference on learning transversal competencies in ASEAN* countries and their neighbors. The day-long virtual event commemorated the 60th anniversary of the founding of VNIES with a clear eye to the future. The three distinguished keynote speakers challenged over 200 participants from around the region and the globe to reflect on what ‘transversal competencies’ are and how to better put them into practice in schools and institutions of learning. Follow-up exchanges featuring panel discussions moderated by NISSEM explored regional and national innovations in policy, research and practice, planning and implementation in Asia.
A volume of papers by the presenters of the Conference will be jointly published later in 2022.
