For the third consecutive year, Cedefop is organising an international workshop on curriculum innovation and reform. This time the focus is on learners’ assessment.
There is little point in introducing new curricula and assessment methods unless they lead to better teaching and learning. For this reason, this year’s workshop will look closely at how policy can create effective links between teaching, learning and assessing.
The workshop will bring together senior policy makers, researchers and practitioners from more than 30 European countries and from international organisations including the European Commission, the World Bank, Unesco-IBE, ETF, the Organisation of Iberoamerican States for Education, Science and Culture, etc.
Discussions will draw on the work of Cedefop on curriculum and assessment policies and practices – which now covers all 32 countries participating in the strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training ("ET 2020") – and other international bodies.
