This year's Worlddidac Asia 2017 Conference in Bangkok brings together leaders from schools, universities, local governments, businesses and education communities from around the world. They will come to learn about innovative products and technologies in educational programmes for technical and vocational education and training (TVET), STEM solutions and languages.
The theme for this year's conference is the path to competence. Delegates will explore and discuss how students of this generation will be tomorrow's leaders and implementers. The conference aims to ensure that education professionals are prepared for 21st-century education and economies to keep up with the changing demand in education.
Delegates will hear a keynote presentation on The Cambridge Approach to Textbooks: Principles into Practice from Cambridge Assessment's Group Director of Assessment Research and Development, Tim Oates CBE, who will be co-presenting with Jane Mann, Director Education Reform, from our partner organisation, Cambridge University Press, on Wednesday 11 October 2017 at 09:00 (IST). The presentation will focus on The Cambridge Approach to Textbooks, to explore the role of textbooks and digital materials and discuss the key features of high-quality materials.
Tim has carried out a lot of work on textbooks and in April 2016 he launched The Cambridge Approach to Textbooks. Subsequently, he blogged about why textbooks shouldn't be scrapped in England which was published by TES.com.
