President of IAFOR’s Inaugural Address: Resilience and Challenges in the New Normal
Keynote Presentation: Toshiya Hoshino

Ambassador Hoshino will deliver his inaugural address as the President of IAFOR, and will speak from his experience in both diplomacy and academia to the delegates of The 14th Asian Conference on Education (ACE2022).

He will speak about the importance of international collaboration and cooperation in addressing some of the most pressing problems facing humanity, from the climate crisis to the global pandemic, that are part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as the crucial role of formalised systems of education, and understanding our role in delivering sustainable solutions.

He will also shed light on his recent endeavour to promote the ESG movement; the environmental, social, and governance aspects in which various non-state actors in societies, businesses and institutions, including educational institutions, can be positive agents for change, especially in times of great political uncertainty and crisis.

Surviving and Thriving in Times of Rapid Change: Multiple Tertiary Teaching Voices from Aotearoa, New Zealand
Panel Presentation: Kaberi Rajendra, Bernadette Solomon, Tino Taliaoa, Melanie Wong

Mental health issues are common in tertiary education all over the world. Research shows that psycho-emotional well-being of tertiary students have a significant influence on their academic performance. The COVID-19 pandemic, and the need to respond to constant changes at a rapid rate, have intensified depression, stress and anxiety. Difficulties adjusting to the new COVID-19 tertiary studying environment, a sense of isolation, academic anxiety and the struggles of balancing work-study commitments are cited as common triggers for stress.

Members of this panel will share key findings from three research projects from Auckland, New Zealand, which captured the psycho-emotional health and well-being of tertiary students as they manoeuvred the uncertain landscape of tertiary education influx due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The panel speakers will discuss the challenges faced by both students and lecturers and how this has impacted on both the students' learning and their mental health and well-being. In addition, they will propose some recommendations for the tertiary learning sector as we move forward and adjust to new COVID-19 landscapes in tertiary education.


Recovery-Oriented Practice in Mental Health: Creating Safe Spaces in Practice & Enhancing Learning

Bernadette Solomon, School of Nursing and Health, Manukau Institute of Technology, New Zealand

This panel speaker will present and discuss the findings of a study aimed to explore the experience and meaning of recovery-oriented practice for 10 nurses working in an acute mental health service. A phenomenological and hermeneutic lens was used to explore the nurses’ experience of working in a recovery-focused manner with service users in the inpatient setting (Solomon, Sutton & McKenna 2021). The findings revealed that recovery-orientated practice is a challenge for nurses working within acute mental health wards. Although the experience and meaning of recovery-focused care varied from nurse to nurse, there were some common elements in the practice accounts. The accounts revealed the nurses’ role in creating different therapeutic spaces to promote safety, relational commitment and healing for service users. However, the nurses faced challenges to recovery-oriented care, within the team culture and the broader service systems, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The findings have implications for nursing practice, especially within an education context for novice nurses and the education of student nurses in a tertiary teaching-learning environment.


Restoring Hope – Addressing and Responding to the Mental and Well-being of Tertiary Students in Aotearoa New Zealand

Melanie Wong, School of Social Work, Manukau Institute of Technology, New Zealand
Tino Taliaoa, School of Social Work, Manukau Institute of Technology, New Zealand

These panel speakers will speak on and discuss the findings of a research project focused on exploring mental health issues of social work degree students. The preliminary findings indicated that many students had experienced mental health issues; they had expressed the expectation that they would be supported in a ‘safe space’ for them to feel they belong and that they can open up about heavy things on their heart/mind. Initial findings suggest that cultural components are missing in mental health conversation. Anxiety from studying can affect students’ mental health and emotional well-being. In addition, many students have other commitments on top of their studies. This along with the pressure of fulfilling their roles in their families and society has created stress and tension. This presentation will discuss some research findings which will inform strategies to address the mental health needs of undergraduate students enrolled in the social work undergraduate programme.


Reflection as a Tool for Improving Online Teaching and Learning Practices

Kaberi Rajendra, School of Health and Counselling, Manukau Institute of Technology, New Zealand

The final panellist will present and discuss the findings of a study aimed at exploring the experience and meaning of recovery-oriented practice for 10 nurses working in an acute mental health service.

Concepts Across Contexts: How to Build Durable Skills through Transdisciplinary Teaching
Keynote Presentation: Kenn Ross

Universities today often teach students in one of two ways: by providing them training for a specific career path (without the soft skills needed to succeed in that profession or a recognition that one’s career might change in the future) or by teaching broad liberal arts concepts without the toolkit to apply them effectively to solve real world challenges. Neither of these approaches prepares young people for a lifetime of meaningful work in our rapidly changing world. Transdisciplinary teaching, which sometimes faces scepticism from traditional disciplinary silos, promotes the development of durable, transferable skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, effective communication, and more. Considering both Asian and global examples, this talk will describe how a true – and modernly reimagined – transdisciplinary approach teaches students how to apply core concepts across contexts, thereby developing durable skills applicable to any career path they pursue.

Mental Health in Action: Strategies to Build Teacher and Student Capacity
Panel Presentation: Abdulqader Alyasin, William Frick, Hiba Harb & Murielle El Hajj Nahas

Mental health of teachers and students has been a growing concern in recent years even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the tangible side effects of the pandemic is its negative impact on teachers’ and students’ mental health. Teachers experienced difficulties in using technology for online classes and were unsatisfied with the administrative support for online education. In addition, the number of online lectures and the preparation time have increased, which resulted in a huge workload, stress, and anxiety. The stresses and restrictions associated with the pandemic have also put students at greater risk of developing mental health issues, which drastically decreased their academic success, their social interactions, as well as their future career and personal opportunities. Regardless of how long or short a time the current pandemic lasts, the normal in education is unlikely to return anytime soon. The pandemic led to a change in the educational system, ranging from delivery mode to shifting to a new paradigm moving to digital and hybrid solutions. This forum discussion will identify strategies to address mental health challenges and promote well-being among teachers and students. For all those who are struggling with mental health issues, the discussion will provide valuable insights into various ways of capacity building in the new normal of education.

The Future of Higher Education: Adapting to the New Normal Post-COVID
Keynote Presentation: Abdulnassir Al-Tamimi

The disruption caused by COVID-19 created a global crisis in education. Higher education institutions were not prepared for this sudden and unexpected transition. Colleges and universities all over the world were forced to perform their day-to-day operations remotely from their homes, while teaching, learning and assessment shifted to hybrid or to fully online. Student engagement and extra-curricular activities were conducted through online portals which may have influenced student success.

At the same time, access to equal and quality education was a challenge to most students and faculty around the world during the pandemic due to a lack of resources. Educators, administrators, and policymakers were compelled to adopt creative and innovative techniques as well as new policies to ensure they are maintaining their missions and educational objectives.

This talk will focus on the current and future of education post-COVID-19 pandemic. Dr Al-Tamimi will share the experiences of higher education institutions in Qatar during the pandemic, how they were able to successfully overcome their challenges and provide his insights on the future of higher education in Qatar.
