  • Thu 17 Jan 2019 09.00 - 11.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-01-17 9:00 2019-01-17 11:00 Europe/Paris Current Research on Economics of Education

Venue: Sala del Capitolo

Hour: 9:00-11:00

The 21st century is developing novel possibilities in education data analysis and novel scientific research with profound implications for education policies. Data from PISA, TIMSS and PIRLS studies have stimulated international comparisons and national research. Economics of education and social studies have benefited from increased data availability and from modern counterfactual impact evaluation methods. Cognitive psychology, neurosciences and other scientific areas have provided educators with a better knowledge on the ways in which we learn, memorize, assimilate knowledge, and develop skills. In these areas, studies are shedding light on successful and unsuccessful education programs and helped dismissing some speculative educational beliefs.

The focus of the lecture by Professor Hanushek will be on "Current Research on Economics of Education".

The lecture will be chaired by Professor Nuno Crato, Former Portuguese Minister of Education.
