Both the Saturday and the Sunday edition of The Kathmandu Post carried articles on the International Conference on Education in a Federal Nepal. The coverage of this two-day conference (which ran on Friday and yesterday) included Prof. Stephen Tee’s keynote speech and Prof. Edwin van Teijlingen reporting on research findings of an education study amongst health educators in Nepal, as well as FHSS’s Visiting Faculty, Prof. Padam Simkhada (based at Liverpool John Moores University). The conference organised by HISSAN and supported by 16 education partners including Bournemouth University, Liverpool John Moores University and The University of Utah (USA) was attended by some 400 delegates.

As the key note speaker of the second day, Prof. Tee emphasised the need for technology-enhanced teaching/ learning processes. He added that a globalised world requires educational institutions to “recognise students as consumers.” He highlighted a number of common (and not so common) approaches to technology-enhanced teaching in the UK. His key note speech was very well received by colleagues academics and educationalists in Nepal. On the first day of the conference Prof. Tee was welcomed by the Prime Minister of Nepal K.P. Oli.
Do you know where I can find more information about the conference?
I’m asking as I’m very interested in the educational system in Nepal and how you can develop it through interaction with international organisations and educational institutions.
