Drawing upon research conducted with school and higher education teachers in South-East Asia and New Zealand, the session discusses the competencies that teachers need to design 21st Century Learning and the challenges they face. The audience will be invited to brainstorm plausible solutions for enhancing teacher competencies for designing 21st Century Learning experiences.
