2nd SHARE National Workshop on the Impact of Qualifications Framework and Learning Outcomes on Higher Education in ASEAN, Cambodia 19-20 July 2016



Welcome remarks by His Excellency Mak Ngoy (Director General, DGHE, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, Cambodia), His Excellency Yuok Ngoy (Secretary of State, MoEYS), His Excellencies Touch Visalsok, Lav Chhiv Eav, and Samedy Sivathana, Dr Stefan Hell (SHARE Team Leader), Dr Susanne Liermann (SHARE Senior Project Manager), and experts Dr Andrea Bateman and Dr Martin Valcke


In cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of the Kingdom of Cambodia SHARE conducted the second in a series of ten national workshops on the “Impact of Qualifications Frameworks and Learning Outcomes on Higher Education”, in Siem Reap, Cambodia. More than 70 academics, university managers and high-level education officials followed the invitation and discussed how to further implement the Cambodian Qualifications Framework and how to align the national system with the ASEAN Qualifications Reference Framework.

The frameworks, which are being implemented at the national and regional level across ASEAN, aim at making learning pathways more transparent through the use of learning outcomes at all levels of education. The workshop in Cambodia focused on the impact of a Learning Outcomes-based approach, in particular on higher education providers.

Developing and implementing learning outcomes will be an ongoing process that also aims at aligning education provision with society’s needs. With its inputs the workshop provided concrete advice for the revision of curricula; discussions e.g. with stakeholders stressed the need for their continued involvement in the process of designing frameworks and writing learning outcomes,; linking up with the industry sector will help to enhance employability of students.

The discussions throughout the two days have shown that such a reform is a shared responsibility; policies would have to incentivise quality outcomes; universities would need to spend their own resources on revising curricula. Throughout the two days the participants discussed how to tackle challenges and how to coordinate efforts in the best possible way.

A concise summary report of the workshop’s discussions will be written and published in due course.
