1st National Convention on Lesson Study

The Philippine Association of Lesson and Learning Studies (PALS) and the UP National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development (UP NISMED) are jointly organizing the first national convention on lesson study on 11-12 April 2019 at UP NISMED, Diliman, Quezon City. DepEd Order. no. 35 s.2016 recognizes school-based professional learning activities and lesson study is one such model.
UP NISMED initiated the creation of PALS in 2014 to open up opportunities for teachers in any subject area to learn about lesson study and use it for their professional learning activities. PALS is a non-profit organization with advocacy of supporting the development of lesson study in the Philippines as a professional learning activity for teachers, educators, and school administrators. To date, PALS membership consists of public and private school teachers, schools heads and officials, and university academics.
The convention is the first of its kind for this particular field in teachers’ professional development in the country. It is also a new area of research for our educators in higher education institutions. With the theme Lesson Study: Collaboratively Improving  Practice One Lesson at a Time, the convention aims to
§  update participants on developments in lesson study at the international and local levels;
§  provide a forum for sharing of lesson study experiences and research results related to lesson study; and
§  encourage participants to research lesson study and produce research lessons to contribute in its development and adaptation to the Philippine educational context.

The two-day convention features plenary lectures and symposia. Posters of lesson study outputs will also be on display.  We are very proud to announce that our keynote speaker is Professor Christine Lee of the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and World Association of Lesson Studies (WALS) Immediate Past President. Local and international speakers as well as practitioners of lesson study in the field have also been invited to share their expertise on a range of topics involving lesson study.
