Brookings annual research and policy symposium focuses on skills for a changing world
On April 5, the Center for Universal Education at Brookings will host its Annual Research and Policy Symposium, which will mark the launch of “Skills for a Changing World: National Perspectives and the Global Movement,” a new report on the current global, regional, and national level movement toward recognizing breadth of skills within education systems. The report includes summary case studies from Kenya, Mexico, Philippines, and South Africa.
Through a series of public discussions, the symposium will highlight current views across curriculum, assessment, and pedagogy on including a range of skills. Policymakers, practitioners, researchers, and thought leaders will discuss design and implementation practices to ensure all children have high-quality learning opportunities that build the skills necessary to create vibrant, healthy societies in a rapidly changing world.
