Key Curricular and Learning Issues in the Post-2015 Education and Development Agenda
International Experts’ Meeting, Geneva, Switzerland, 23-25 September 2013
Despite differences in approach, national education authorities around the world are seeking innovative solutions to improve the quality and relevance of student learning. The curriculum is increasingly viewed as the foundation of comprehensive educational reforms that are aimed at achieving high-quality learning outcomes. UNESCO has taken a leading role in the Post-2015 dialogue, and the IBE can make a valuable contribution on issues related to curriculum and learning.
In this context, UNESCO-IBE is hosting the International Experts’ Meeting to discuss Key Curricular and Learning Issues in the Post-2015 Education and Development Agenda from 23-25 September 2013 in Geneva, Switzerland. The meeting will gather about 25-30 leading practitioners from different regions, including policy-makers, educators, curriculum specialists and researchers to identify and discuss key curricular issues, research priorities and development trends from around the world. The IBE also hopes that the meeting will spark further dialogue, and strengthen relationships between an active community of educators, curriculum experts and the Institute.
At the end of the three-day session, the IBE hopes to draw on the collective experience and vision of the group to identify the main contemporary curriculum trends, issues and challenges around the world, as well as discuss the results of curriculum-related research, in order to refine its programme of activities for the coming years.
