TEESNet 2016

TEESNet Annual Conference 2016 FLYER PAGE 1

Measuring What’s Valuable or Valuing What’s Measurable?

Monitoring and Evaluation in Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC)

This year’s TEESNet conference took place on the 21st September at Liverpool Hope University. With a range of relevant and stimulating presentations and keynote speeches, the conference brought together academics and researchers, teachers and NGOs to explore opportunities and challenges in monitoring and evaluation of education that supports people in leading fulfilling lives in a changing, globalised world. This year’s theme was a response to growing interest in monitoring and evaluation in ESDGC. We also provided opportunities to explore the values underpinning education policy and practice for ESDGC  and provide a forum to debate the proposed PISA assessment of global competencies and UNESCO’s education goals post 2015.

Copies of all TEESNet 2016 presentations will soon be available. See below for links:
