9th Asia Leadership Roundtable: Quality Research, Regional Impact, International Presence


The first Asia Leadership Roundtable (ALR), hosted by The Joseph Lau Luen Hung Charitable Trust Asia Pacific Centre for Leadership and Change (APCLC), was held in Hong Kong in 2010 at The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) (the then Hong Kong Institute of Education). It is now firmly established as the premier forum for research in school leadership in the Asia Pacific Region. Publications flowing from projects initiated through the Roundtable have had a marked impact on knowledge production and dissemination throughout the region – particularly in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam. Bringing together 60 key international and regional researchers, the ALR aims to build the regional school leadership knowledge base and contribute to the capacity and productivity of junior schools in East Asia. Scholars, practitioners and policy makers from 17 countries or areas across five continents attended the 2018 Roundtable.

The 2018 ALR was again organised and sponsored by APCLC, the Faculty of Education and Human Development of EdUHK, the Education Bureau of Jianggan District, Hangzhou China, and The Institute of Schooling Reform and Development of East China Normal University. The theme this year was “The West Wind vs. the East Wind: Understanding Leadership for Teacher Learning”. Work flowing from and supported by the Roundtable marks APCLC as the dominant contributor to school leadership research in East and Southeast Asia and positions EdUHK as a key international player in the field.
