KIX EAP Learning Cycle on Diagnostic Tools for Improving Education Policy Planning, starting on 20 September 2022.
The Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX) Europe, Asia and Pacific (EAP) Learning Cycle on “‘Diagnostic tools for improving education policy planning’ is a professional development opportunity proposed by the UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) in the framework of the KIX EAP programme hosted by NORRAG.
This professional development course is proposed to Ministry of Education planners and managers, researchers, and civil society representatives of the 21 KIX-EAP countries taking part in the KIX EAP Hub region.
This Learning Cycle focuses on identifying system bottlenecks for improved education policy planning, with a special focus on the use of diagnostic tools for system performance analysis. The learning objectives pursued are:
- To learn about and understand the added value of diagnostic tools;
- To examine and contrast different diagnostic tools available, their similarities and differences, and the agendas they might implicitly carry;
- To apply basic identification techniques to navigate the IIEP diagnostic tools: Education Policy Trees and Education Policy Toolbox;
- To lead an analysis on level completion, focusing on determinants of access and drop-out/ push-out
- To combine different sources of information, analyse the results, and identify key policy options for national dialogue;
- To engage in discussion within country and with other countries about the identification of system bottlenecks and exchange on policy options;
- To produce policy-relevant case studies that are published online, in English, to be disseminated widely by the KIX EAP hub.
Specifically, this course will enable participants to lead a guided analysis of key bottlenecks in their education system, and identify cause-and-effect relationships that might be transformed by the implementation of targeted policies and programmes. Using the IIEP diagnostic tool, the education policy trees and the toolbox, participants will be able to identify promising policy options for addressing issues identified in the diagnostic phase.
To draw the full benefits of this course, participating country teams should ideally have direct access to the EMIS database, learning assessment data, as well as data on human resources, enrolment, student characteristics, etc.
A Certificate of participation will be issued by IIEP, upon successful completion of the knowledge report.
