About EC

The aim of the Colloquium

is to provide a platform for local and international experts to discuss the most pressing debates in education today, to gain insights for our education community and illuminate our way for future secondary education in Hong Kong.

Why attend the Education Colloquium?

We hope that the professional dialogues developed in the Colloquium can lead us to look for way forward for Hong Kong’s Education; to meet new makers and to experience new ideas; to share ideas, experiences and best practices for education; to explore new trends and discover innovative solutions.

Whom is this for?

The Colloquium brings together all stakeholders including principals, vice-principals, teachers, school-sponsoring bodies, government officials, university scholars, parents, students and NGOs. It will provide opportunities for the sharing of perspectives, discussion and debate on controversies related to curriculum. We therefore hope to create an interactive setting for dialogues throughout the sessions.
