This workshop will bring together leaders and staff from teacher organizations and academic researchers to rethink, and produce new ways to respond to, data-driven reform agendas in education.
Leading up to the release of the OECD’s PISA 2018 report in December 2019, this workshop will take stock of PISA’s impact and generate proactive responses to emerging developments in the measurement and comparison of educational outcomes. Participants will engage in debate about privatisation and datafication in the Global South and, using an innovative methodology, they will explore alternative approaches for counting what counts in schools. The workshop will focus on brokering new informal and formal relationships among researchers, universities and teacher associations. This will be an important opportunity to develop and sustain collaborative research networks that can impact and shape education for global futures.
