ASEAN professors in Korea to share good practices on e-Learning amid COVID-19
- ASEAN-Korea Centre and KERIS to organize a series of workshops for the CAPK -
- The first event on e-learning to be livestreamed on YouTube (Nov. 14) -
Seoul, Korea - The ASEAN-Korea Centre (Secretary General Lee Hyuk) and the Korea Education Research Information Service (KERIS, President Park Hae Ja) will co-organize a series of workshops for the Council of ASEAN Professors in Korea (CAPK) on e-Learning contents and services on 14 November and 4 December, respectively. The workshop series aims at increasing capacity of ASEAN professors and researchers in Korea, who are on the front line of ‘untact’, or contact-less education, and bolstering ASEAN-Korea cooperation in the field of education.
The CAPK was officially inaugurated in 2019 at the initiative of the ASEAN-Korea Centre with the aim to establish a network of ASEAN professors and scholars working in Korea. In 2019, members of the CAPK played a leading role in the ASEAN-Korea Academic Conference co-organized by the ASEAN-Korea Centre and the KERIS which focused on e-learning methods in higher education. The workshop series was designed as a follow-up to last year’s Academic Conference.
The first workshop will be held online on 14 November under the theme, ‘Producing e-Learning Contents and Sharing Best Practices.’ Members of the CAPK will share experiences and good practices on e-learning contents to ensure successful adoption of their teaching skills, which is necessary in the rapidly changing educational environment amid COVID-19. Furthermore, ASEAN-Korea cooperation in the education field, such as the ASEAN Cyber University project, will also be introduced in order to promote their understanding on ASEAN-Korea relations. The online event will be livestreamed on ASEAN-Korea Centre’s YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/akcsns), to allow anyone interested to participate.
The second workshop, which is scheduled for 4 December, will offer an intensive introduction on higher education services provided by KERIS, such as Research Information Sharing Service (RISS), Korea Open Course Ware: Open Service for Teaching Materials (KOCW), and K-Open Educational Resources: Online Lecture Contents by e-Learning (K-OER).
Lee Hyuk, Secretary General of the ASEAN-Korea Centre, noted that “ASEAN professors and scholars working in Korea have been at the forefront in increasing awareness of ASEAN in the education field. Members of the CAPK, in particular, contribute not only to teaching in various disciplines ranging from language, business, to nursing and medicine in universities across the country, but also to developing ASEAN academic community in Korea by strengthening the network among them and expanding ASEAN-Korea cooperation in education. At a time that requires new paradigm of teaching through online tools and services, the Workshop is expected to equip these passionate CAPK members with quality e-learning contents and methods, while also offering networking opportunities among ASEAN scholars in Korea.”
