ASEF ClassNet School Collaborations are peer-to-peer learning initiatives that engage school leaders & teachers across 51 ASEM countries to share and jointly work on innovative teaching & learning practices. Designed and implemented by Asian and European secondary, high and vocational school teachers, these collaborations are conducted either as an integral element of the daily school curriculum or as an extracurricular activity. They consist of both virtual and practical activities and have a duration between 3-12 months.
This year, two School Collaborations are planned to promote Education for Sustainable Development & Global Citizenship as well as Digital Competences, with a particular focus on SDG4 (Quality Education) & SDG13 (Climate Action).
This School Collaboration will provide pedagogical capacity building opportunities to the participant teachers on the 5 thematic areas covered in the ASEFClassNet Handbook on Holistic Teaching and Learning: 1) Relationship Building 2) Inclusion 3) Active Learning & Engagement 4) Teaching Resilience and Grit and 5) Teaching Socio-Emotional Skills (SES). The aim of the training will be to inform, show and support teachers across Asia and Europe to cope within their different educational & cultural contexts and ensure a holistic teaching and learning environment for their students and themselves – despite the ongoing challenges in teaching and learning.
This School Collaboration will empower participants to innovate STEM teaching and learning through the lens of ESD learning objectives with a particular focus on “SDG 13 -Climate Change.” The Collaboration will show participants how they can connect Climate Change Education with the STEM subjects they teach through real-world driven climate challenges.
