Cambridge Assessment, OCR’s parent body, is hosting an event on 28 February to evaluate what 21st century skills students are currently being taught.
As experts in assessment, they’re hosting a debate to evaluate what skills students are being taught and whether they are being properly assessed and recognised. It will explore how skills can be incorporated into curricula and properly assessed, as well as addressing the following points: What's the impact of 21st century skills in international contexts? What's being done in the classroom today? And are the needs of industry and higher education really being met?
The event will bring together practitioners, researchers, policy makers and all those with an interest in the field. Confirmed speakers include:
*** Andreas Schleicher, Special Advisor on Education Policy, OECD, will also participate in the event through a live videolink from Paris ***
