OECD to hold webinar on education policy
The OECD is holding a webinar on improving global competency through education to achieve inclusive growth.
Andreas Schleicher, the director for education and skills, and special adviser on education policy to OECD secretary-general Ángel Gurría, will conduct the event on Wednesday, 11 May, at 5pm Paris time.
Globalisation brings innovation, new experiences and higher living standards, but it equally contributes to economic inequity and social division, the OECD press notice announcing the event says.
That, it adds, “is why this generation requires new capacities: Young people need to collaborate with people from different disciplines, cultures and value systems, in a way that solves complex problems and creates economic and social capital. They need to bring judgement and action to difficult situations in which people’s beliefs and standards are at odds.”
In the webinar, Schleicher will seek to answer the question: Is there a distinctive competence that equips young people for the culturally diverse and digitally-connected communities in which they work and socialise?
He will also set out the OECD’s perspective – explaining the key elements from its framework for defining, assessing and reporting global competence as part of PISA 2018.
