SEAMEO Regional Centre for QITEP in Mathematics conducts Course on Lesson Study for mathematics teachers of Junior Secondary School from SEAMEO Member Countries entitled “Developing Lesson Study in Mathematics Education” on 5 - 30 October, 2009. The participants attending this course come from four countries namely Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Indonesia.

In this Course, SEAMEO regional Centre for QITEP in Mathematics collaborates with CRICED (Centre for Research on International Cooperation in Educational Development) University of Tsubuka, Japan.

Centre Director Meeting in Bangkok on 4 – 6 August 2009 inisiated the mentioned colaboration. In the meeting, SEAMEO Regional Centre for QITEP in Mathematics proposed to collaborate in the field of mathematics education with CRICED University of Tsukuba, Japan.

Dr. Mariko Sato who represents CRICED University of Tsukuba Japan, took action to the proposal. She recommended Dr. Masami Isoda to be involved in Course on Developing Lesson Study in Mathematics Education held by QITEP in Mathematics. Dr. Isoda is the chief editor of Japan Society of Mathematics Education and director of Project Overseer, APEC Lesson Study Project.

On 7 October 2009, Dr. Masami Isoda delivered lecture on Japanese Lesson Study in Mathematics. He explained that in the study of Mathematics Lesson in Japan, teacher starts with task or problems which the students know how to solve it. Next, teacher extends the problems and asks the students to solve them, based on the solution of the previous problems and to find the pattern, if any. Students then generalize mathematics concepts learned and communicate the reason. From the processes, students learn how to represent mathematics concepts as well as values and sharing.

In addition to the lecture, on 8 October 2009 he delivered workshop on “Enjoy Mathematics with Problem Solving Approach: Beyond the lesson study as a style for professional development managed by administrators”. Not only the participants of the course but also lecturers from State University of Yogyakarta and Sanata Dharma University, principals, and supervisors attended the workshop. Dr. Masami Isoda stated that Japanese teachers emphasize problem solving approach in teaching and learning process. He explained, based on Video study “Before It’s Too Late”, 2000, Japanese teachers begin the lesson by presenting students with a mathematics problem employing principles they have not yet learned. The students then work alone or in small groups to devise a solution. After a few minutes, students are called on to present their answers; the whole class works through the problems and solutions to uncover the related mathematical concepts and reasoning.

It is undeniable that lecture and workshop delivered by Dr Masami Isoda broadened the knowledge of the participants, especially in term of the clear description of lesson study in Mathematics conducted in Japan. Participants are able to see aspects influencing success in achieving mathematics learning objectives. They are expected to implement the aspects in their own teaching, later when they are back home.

SEAMEO Regional Centre for QITEP in Mathematics

What is SEAMEO Regional Centre for QITEP in Mathematics?

Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Centre for Quality Improvement of Teacher and Education Personnel was established accordance with the article IV (10) of the chapter of the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization. It was launched on July 13, 2009 by H E Jurin Laksanawisit the President of SEAMEO. The Centre located in Yogyakarta, Indonesia has purpose to take part in the quality improvement of Mathematics teachers and education personnel in Southeast Asia


To be a centre of professional excellence in the area of Mathematics teaching for teachers and education personnel within the framework of sustainable development.


To provide relevant and quality programmes of professional development for mathematics teachers and education personnel through capacity building activities, resources sharing, research and development and networking.


The proposed SEAMEO Centre for QITEP in Mathematics is expected to achieve two major goals:

The first goal is to cater for the needs of improving the quality of mathematics teachers and education personnel in the region. It is expected that the new SEAMEO centre will contribute toward the growth and the strenghtening the quality of education for better quality of life of the people in the region.

The second goal is to establish extensive networks, sharing and exchanges information and experiences among SEAMEO Member Countries. It sis expected also that decision makers from the partners are able to access timely, accurate, and consistent data for better policy desicion to meet a wide range of benefits.


Based on its goals, the Centre will carry out three objectives:
1. To promote sustainable professional development for teachers and education personnel in the area Mathematics
2. To provide intellectual forums for policy makers and experts in the field of Mathematics.
3. To establish networks and patnerships at national, regional, and international levels.


The questions asked in the questionnaire relate to the programmes of the Centre whether the respondents agree or disagree with the programmes offered by the Centre. Reffering to the result of the programmes proposed as follows.

1. Enhance programmes excellence and relevance:
