About the forum

The Public Forum on “How do we know if an Education Reform is Successful?” was jointly organized by the Centre for Information Technology in Education (CITE) and the Faculty of Education, University of Hong Kong. Many countries around the world have launched major education reform and innovation initiatives since the 1990s so that schools can better prepare our younger generation for life and work in the 21st century. Hong Kong has also launched its comprehensive education reform at the turn of the new millennium, focusing on lifelong learning and learning to learn.

  • How do we know if the education reform is successful?
  • How do we know what we have achieved or failed to achieve?
  • What can we learn from international and our own experiences, so as to better achieve our reform goals?

CITE is jointly organizing with the European Commission a high level expert seminar to address these questions, involving experts from Asian and Europe to draw on the research findings and experience from countries in these two regions. In this Public Forum, these experts shared with the audience their insights on critical success conditions for scalable and sustainable educational innovations and their recommendations for policymakers, teachers, principals and other members of the community interested in the future of education developments and reform in Hong Kong.
