As new global challenges arise due to the advancements of technology, more equipped teachers are crucial to thriving in a rapidly evolving digital era. Also, with the Covid-19 pandemic significantly reshaping the educational landscape in the Philippines, issues on teachers’ readiness and access to technology and other instructional resources for distance learning are among the top concerns. Hence, the Science Education Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-SEI) brings you the 2nd DOST-SEI Project STAR International Conference with the theme “Innovations, Challenges and Transformation in STEM Education: Moving forward in a Post pandemic World”. 

Teachers, educators, researchers, and education policy-makers across the 17 regions of the Philippines are expected to virtually join the conference to discuss the current state and future direction of local and international science and mathematics education. This serves as an avenue for exchanging ideas, unique perspectives and experiences, innovations, and exemplary teaching practices, which can contribute to elevating the quality of teaching science and mathematics in the Philippines.

DOST-SEI remains true to its commitment to delivering professional development opportunities for teachers to meet the demands of education 4.0 and thrive moving forward in a post-pandemic world. This also supports STAR’s goal of capacitating and empowering Filipino teachers who will lead a community of innovators for the learners of tomorrow.
