Globalization and living together: the challenges for educational content in Asia

The meeting aimed to make participants aware of cross country concerns about curriculum development, introduce them to updated methodologies of curriculum design and implementation and start a dialogue on possibilities for regional cooperation in the field of curriculum change. Following the seminar, a draft proposal for setting up a network for the management of curriculum change in Asia was prepared and circulated to participating countries for their feedback and input. Apart from India's efforts to establish a National Consortium for the Management of Curriculum Change, countries did not respond to this proposal and it was decided to pursue networking activities in a more informal manner.
