Keynote Address 1

The keynote address 1 will be delivered at the inauguration ceremony. Dr. Upali Mampitiya, senior lecturer at the Open University of Sri Lanka, and a prominent educator, will deliver the keynote address.

Title - Developing 21st Century skills through Mathematics Education

This keynote address will first focus on the Sri Lanka Qualifications Framework (SLQF). The twelve categories of learning outcomes described by this framework are of national importance as they address the 21st century skills required by all qualification holders in the country, from senior secondary level upwards. As a practical application of the SLQF, the senior secondary mathematics curriculum will be looked at from the viewpoint of achieving those twelve categories of learning outcomes. Finally, the contribution expected from every teacher to help students achieve those learning outcomes will be discussed in terms of the learning-teaching methods and assessment techniques practised in the classroom.
