Education, Development and Sustainability: A Critical Dialogue on the Role of Global Learning Metrics

  • The Center for Advanced Studies in Global Education is hosting an open event: 

    Education, Development and Sustainability: A Critical Dialogue on the Role of Global Learning Metrics 

    Our speakers will engage in a discussion about current perspectives on education challenges, development models, and their relationships with environmental issues. 

    • David Berliner, Regents' Professor Emeritus and research professor, ASU's Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College
    • Mary Metcalfe, director of education change, Programme to Improve Learning Outcomes, South Africa
    • Tinde Kovacs Cerovic, former assistant minister of education, Serbia; Open Society Foundations Education Support Program advisory board

    This 90-minute debate, moderated by Gustavo Fischman professor at Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College.

    The dialogue will explore three fundamental questions:

    • What are the primary uses and misuses of global learning metrics?
    • What is the relationship between GLMs and models of development? Should we be paying more attention to environmental issues when planning educational reforms?
    • How can GLMs be reconceptualized to better understand the relationships between education, development and sustainability?

    The discussion will be open and will include audience member questions.
