On November 25th 2013, Indonesia celebrated National Teachers’ Day where we acknowledge the support and dedication of our teachers to education. blueVisions Management Indonesia took part in the GURUKU Education Festival in Jakarta to commemorate this day.
The GURUKU Education Festival 2013 took place at the SMESCO Tower, South Jakarta, and brought together education experts from all over the world to talk about developing the professionalism and quality of teachers to provide better learning systems for our students. The program emphasised how Indonesia can learn from other countries to continually improve and update its education system.
Among the series of speakers, Dianne Robinson, Director, Client Relations at New South Wales AMES, in collaboration with blueVisions Management, spoke about how education is conducted in Australia and the practices implemented there to improve student performance and outcomes.
“I was delighted to be invited to speak at the GURUKU Education Festival about some of the key changes being implemented in NSW,” Robinson said.
“It was an excellent event where ideas and initiatives were discussed by those attending. The conference program was of interest to school principals and teachers and the program covered key initiatives in the Indonesian education system. The exhibition was a great addition to the conference and encouraged dialogue and discussion. It also gave many delegates the opportunity to look at new offerings.”
Included among other speakers were: Gaye Pullyn, General Manager of ACT Education Solutions Ltd, Australia, Arifin Tasrif, President Director of PT Pupuk Sriwidjaja, and Prof. Dr. Hein Roelfsema, Director of the Utrech Center of Entrepreneurship at Utrech University.
