The Main Office of SEAMEO QITEP in Science

Last week, i have been involved in SEAMEO QITEP in Science. What’s that? SEAMEO QITEP in Science? SEAMEO is an abbreviation of ‘South East Asia Ministry of Education Organization‘, while QITEP is ‘Quality Improvement of Teachers and Education Personnel‘; so, basically, SEAMEO QITEP, is a center that has a task to improve the qualility of teachers & education personnel in the south east Asia region, through cooperation between the ministry of the education of the region. There are three QITEP’s centers, for Mathematics, Language & Science.

Since the QITEP is a new organization, so for the first time, while launched in July 2009; the QITEP organized three courses for each field, and this is, for the first time, numerous field of study, in which previously haven’t been applied to the basic curriculum in school, introduced in the courses.

For the QITEP in Science, the theme was ‘Sun-Planetary Interaction‘. The course catered various basic knowledge on the Sun as the star, the stars & basic astronomy, how the Sun & the Earth interact through magnetic-field, the influence of the Sun to the Earth & the inter-planetary environment, method of observation, how to measure, how to analyze the data, etc; and for two weeks, all the materials given to the students. There were 30 students, consist of various teachers & education personnel, with various backgrounds, and from the various countries of SEA.

Two weeks maybe too short, compared to the various materials provided; as for me, i only took a small part during the course, so, maybe i could only share a small amount of knowledge. Nevertheless, imho, the more important thing is, they could learn, elaborate the knowledge, and then they will share to the students, and on a long run, will improve the education of science in the region. I hope.
