ASEAN Teacher Education Network (AsTEN)

The ASEAN Teacher Education Network

(AsTEN) is a network of premier Teacher
Education Institutions (TEIs) of the countries in
the ASEAN. Its goal is to address issues,
challenges, and concerns relevant to Teacher
Education programs, practices and policies in
the ASEAN Region. It also serves as a vehicle for
collaboration in both academic and research
endeavors within
and across
institutions that will ultimately benefit the
ASEAN nations and peoples.
As a member of AsTEN, the TEI must qualify to
certain criteria, as follow: 1) that the TEI is a leading institution/university in
Teacher Education in the ASEAN member country; 2) that the TEI made significant
contributions to Education/Teacher Education in the area of Curriculum, Research
and Instruction; 3) that the TEI offers advanced degrees in Education and related
disciplines preferably on various specializations; and, 4) that the TEI has
international linkages and partnership with institutions especially in the ASEAN
AsTEN envisions to prepare and to adapt to the changes and challenges brought
about by the ASEAN integration focusing on Teacher Education.

Accreditation with the ASEAN

It is AsTENs aim to become ASEAN-accredited to keep pace with the ongoing

Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) integration. The need to prepare
professionally and be globally competitive by consistently addressing challenges
relevant to Teacher Education programs through collaborations with other
institutions in the region is one among the many positive actions toward
transformation that AsTEN desires to achieve since its inception.
In the past two years, AsTEN has already accomplished so many through its relevant
projects, researches, conferences, and roundtable discussions. As a matter of fact, the
Philippine Normal University, as the Lead Shepherd of AsTEN, recently held a
roundtable discussion for the establishment of the Philippine Teacher Education
Network (PhilTEN).
