RISE Annual Conference 2018

Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford, UK
RISE Annual Conference 2018

 

RISE is a large scale, multi-country research programme developed to answer the question: “How can education systems be reformed to deliver better learning for all?” The RISE Programme Annual Conferences bring together high-profile academics and policy makers for two days of lively debate (e.g., RISE Annual Conference 2017).

The conference will feature a keynote session on day one and a lunchtime panel session on global indicators for education on day two. Over the course of the packed two-day schedule, the conference will also feature technical presentations by the RISE Country Research Team members and invited speakers in various themed sessions.

The draft programme schedule below will be updated in the coming weeks as the programme is finalised and speakers announced.

Please note, due to the high interest in the conference, we have closed the online registration. If you have any questions regarding attendance, please feel free to email the conference organisers.
