Education at a glance : OECD indicators by Centre for Educational Research and Innovation( )

in 4 languages and held by 1,324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

OECD's annual Education at a Glance looks at who participates in education, what is spent on it, how education systems operate and the results achieved. The latter includes indicators on a wide range of outcomes, from comparisons of students' performance in key subject areas to the impact of education on earnings and on adults' chances of employment
Students with disabilities, learning difficulties and disadvantages by Centre for Educational Research and Innovation( )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an internationally comparable set of indicators on educational provision for students with disabilities, learning difficulties and disadvantages. It looks in detail at the students concerned, where they are educated (special schools, special classes or regular classes) and what their level of education is (pre-primary, primary, lower secondary and upper secondary education). It also includes information on the physical provision and on student/teacher ratios and discusses policy implications concerning special education. The analysis is based on both quantitative and qualitative data provided by 28 OECD countries and a number of provinces. This volume is an updated edition of the statistics and indicators issued in 2004 under the title Equity in education : students with disabilities, learning difficulties and disadvantages.--Publisher's description
E-learning in tertiary education : where do we stand? by Richard Garrett( )

18 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the burst of the dot-com bubble in 2000, scepticism about e-learning replaced over-enthusiasm. Rhetoric aside, where do we stand? Why and how do different kinds of tertiary education institutions engage in e-learning? What do institutions perceive to be the pedagogic impact of e-learning in its different forms? How do institutions understand the costs of e-learning? How might e-learning impact staffing and staff development? This book addresses these and many other questions. The study is based on a qualitative survey of practices and strategies carried out by the OECD Centre for Edu

Demand-sensitive schooling? : evidence and issues by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many educational experts are identifying a critical shift from from supply-led systems, operating to procedures decided by educational authorities, schools and teachers, towards systems which are much more sensitive to demand. But whose demands should these be? What are they? And how will schools recognize and cope with them? This book examines different aspects of the demand concept and presents international evidence from Austria, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Denmark, England, Finland, Hungary, Japan, Poland, Spain, and the United States to reveal attitudes and expectations.--Publisher's description
Knowledge management in the learning society by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To function and prosper in the learning society, the management of knowledge is becoming a new and crucial challenge for both private companies and public organisations. It is increasingly important for companies and organisations to produce, share and use knowledge on a national and global scale. However, there is an urgent need for analysis of the knowledge economy both at the micro- and macro economic level in order to understand its characteristics and dynamics, and to identify the most appropriate routes for policy development. Little is known on how sectors and organisations could use kn
Human capital investment : an international comparison by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investment in human capital is to the fore of debate and analysis in OECD countries about how to promote economic prosperity, fuller employment, and social cohesion. Individuals, organisations and nations increasingly recognise that high levels of knowledge, skills and competencies are essential to their future security and success. Investment in skills and competencies takes place in a variety of settings ranging from early childhood education to informal learning in the workplace, and involves a wide range of actors from individuals to enterprises and governments. This report aims to clarify what is now known about human capital and how it can be measured. It responds to a request by governments represented in the OECD Council "to develop an initial set of indicators of human capital investment based on existing data, analyse areas where significant gaps remain in internationally comparable data, identify the cost of development of data collection for new measures and performance indicators, and report to Ministers in 1998". Table of contents: * Chapter 1. The Importance, Scope and Measurement of Human Capital (Growing interest in human capital. The strategic role of human capital investment. Defining the scope of human capital. Analysis and measures.) * Chapter 2. Measuring the Stock of Human Capital (Three approaches to measuring human capital stock. Measuring educational attainment. Measuring adult skills directly. Estimating the market value of human capital. Beyond individual characteristics.) * Chapter 3. Investment in Human Capital (Measuring the resources invested. Financial measures of investment. Time investment: measuring participation.) * Chapter 4. Returns to Investment in Human Capital (Benefits, costs and returns. Evidence of benefits of investment in human capital. Calculating rates of return.) * Chapter 5. Improving the Knowledge Base: Indicators, Data and Research Needs (Identifying the principal gaps. From measuring participation in education and training to measuring human capital. Comparing investment costs with benefits. The cost of data collection. Conclusion: balancing measurement and understanding.) * Chapter 6. Human Capital Investment: Policy Issues and Questions
Education and work : the views of the young by Centre for Educational Research and Innovation( Book )

13 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and French and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data on youth aged 14 to 25 in 15 countries were analyzed to clarify their views on their needs, expectations, and responsibilities in a changing society. The extent to which educational systems and practices should be modified in response to these demands was probed. Analysis showed young people are committed to family life; they value commitment to one's country; their goal in life is to live as they intend; most value education; and they view work as a normal and necessary part of adulthood. Analysis suggested that the relationship between youth, education, and other life opportunities can be characterized by three main features: schooling is the single most common experience of youth, but it does not carry the same value for all; young people are quite critical of the education system, but they believe schooling is important; and social class and gender biases are widespread. Young people's perceptions of work and employment were positive, and they liked work-experience programs. Youth seemed to associate full-time employment with adulthood, and youth programs that prolong education were viewed as perpetuating the status of nonadult. (Policy making for youth in transition is discussed, and the project methodology is appended.) (Ylb)

Multicultural education by Centre for Educational Research and Innovation( Book )

18 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume provides papers presented in January 1985 at a symposium at the headquarters of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (oecd) on the subject of the various ways, means, and problems associated with providing a mainstream education for children of ethnic minorities in member countries of the oecd. The main thrust of the project was to analyze the consequences for education systems of the cultural and linguistic changes brought about by new lifestyles and forms of social organization. The papers are organized into the following four subject areas: (1) past and present: old problems, new issues; (2) cultural identities; (3) educational dilemmas; and (4) focus on the languages. Most papers are followed by one or more commentary. A final paper provides a retrospect on the information presented at the symposium. A bibliography follows each paper. (Ps)
One school, many cultures by Centre for Educational Research and Innovation( Book )

14 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report grows out of a symposium focusing on Education and Cultural and Linguistic Pluralism (ecalp), a project of enquiry of the international Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (ceri). The report aims to clarify trends in multicultural education, and to examine the effects of cultural and linguistic development on educational systems in member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (oecd). The report comprises an introduction and five chapters. Chapter I, "The Lines of Investigation," discusses the following issues basic to the study: (1) cultural identity; (2) greater cultural uniformity; (3) cultural relativism; (4) the new minorities; (5) multilingual contexts; and (6) the ethnic dilemma. Chapter ii, "The Multicultural Context," describes the following sociocultural elements of the research: (1) the socio-geographical context; (2) urban changes; and (3) terminological misunderstandings. Chapter iii, "Multicultural Education Policies in the oecd Countries," presents and compares systemic approaches to cultural changes in 11 member nations. Chapter iv, "Issues in the Debate on Multicultural Education," analyzes the following problems revealed by the comparison of multicultural education policies: (1) social consensus; (2) cultural identity; (3) competences of the education system and multicultural reality; (4) limits to multicultural education policies; and (5) weaknesses of the theoretical framework. Chapter v presents conclusions drawn from the analysis. Each chapter includes notes and references. (Af)
Overcoming exclusion through adult learning by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phenomenon of social exclusion has become one of the outstanding problems on the eve of the 21st century. Even with the long-term trend towards rising general levels of affluence across OECD countries, large sections of our societies are missing out and for some prospects are getting worse. Learning -- in formal education and in a wide range of other community and enterprise settings -- represents one of the most important means of overcoming exclusion. While much is known about the impact of schooling for young people, the relationships between exclusion and adult learning are less well examined. This study seeks to address this gap, focusing on 19 innovative learning initiatives that are making the difference in six countries: Belgium (Flemish Community), Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the United Kingdom (England). How well do these initiatives meet the learning needs of adults at risk of exclusion? How are they organised and what are their innovative features? These are the key questions answered, taking into account not only the point of view of the analysts, organisers and administrators, but also that of the adult learners themselves
Becoming adult in a changing society by James S Coleman( Book )

12 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and French and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication focuses on a conceptual and research-oriented analysis of the broader issues related to the transition to adulthood. The introduction discusses the societal changes in the highly industrialized countries since World War ii which have extensive consequences for youth. The concept of youth as a stage and a lifestyle falling between adolescence and adulthood is explored along with the implications of the concept for the industrial nations. Part I of the report presents an interdisciplinary, descriptive overview of changing concepts and viewpoints relating to the transition to adulthood. The implications of these changes for schooling and on the economy and the labor market are discussed. Part ii of the report explores the current relationships and changes among the three major institutions of work, family, and school as they affect the transition to adulthood. The third and final part of the report identifies a number of possible policy responses, within and outside of education, to the problems analyzed in the first sections. This section also identifies areas where further research is needed. Reference notes and a four-page bibliography conclude the report. (Mcf)
Inclusive education at work : students with disabilities in mainstream schools by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rights of students with disabilities to be educated in their local mainstream school is becoming more and more accepted in most countries, and many reforms are being put in place to achieve this goal. Further, there is no reason to segregate disabled students in public education systems; instead, education systems need to be reconsidered to meet the needs of all students. Based on in-depth analysis of inclusive practice in eight countries, this book addresses the issues that arise for such practices to be successful. The most detailed international comparative study ever carried out, this book shows that all students, whatever the type and extent of their disability, can be successfully included in mainstream schools, as long as certain safeguards are ensured. Nine areas emerge as being of crucial importance: funding models, systems of public accountability for schools, pupil assessment, curriculum development, adult-to-student ratios, the role of classroom assistants, the functioning of support services, the training of teachers and other professionals and community and parental involvement. The country case studies are complemented by comprehensive annexes describing how teachers can be most efficiently prepared for special education, and developing a procedure for cost-effectiveness analysis of special education
Co-ordinating services for children and youth at risk : a world view by Centre for Educational Research and Innovation( Book )

18 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some 15 to 30 per cent of our children and youth are at risk of failing in school where learning and behaviour problems touch ever younger children. In many countries with very different political and cultural backgrounds, these challenges are being met by increasing the co-ordination of education, health and social services, a process often galvanised by a broader involvement, extending to business and senior citizens. This is more than merely tinkering with statutory systems of service provision. Current services are mismatched; our vision of the family and its needs is changing along with the balance between prevention and remediation, and the ways that professionals work together. This book provides the detailed stories of how this process has developed in seven OECD countries: Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, and the United States. It looks at system change from the points of view of policy-makers, managers, practitioners and service users. It provides information on the background to the changes, highlighting what was provided to help the changes happen and investigating the process of change and the outcomes of the reforms. The scope of the work is broad: it covers pre-school, school age and transition to work
Motivating students for lifelong learning by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at eight countries offering innovative schemes that appear to be developing skills and attitudes necessary for lifelong learning. It asks the question 'what can govenments and education systems do to inculcate the zest for learning that young people will need if they are to thrive in 21st century post-industrial societies?
Understanding the social outcomes of learning by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Education is vital for economic success, both at the national and the individual level. But education also has significant social effects. This report is OECD's first attempt to gather and synthesise developments in measuring these social effects. The report focuses on two broad areas: health, and civic and social engagement. In general, better educated people are healthier, and take more part in civic activities. Why should this be so? This publication draws on findings from 13 OECD countries (Austria, Flemish Belgium, Canada, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom [England and Scotland] and the United States) to provide new models and insights into these important contemporary issues
School and community : a report based on presentations made to a conference at Slaugham, United Kingdom, 15th-19th October, 1973 by Centre for Educational Research and Innovation( Book )

36 editions published between 1975 and 1980 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two monographs contained in this volume are concerned with analyzing the consequences of policy choices affecting the interrelationships between schools and their environments. The first study, "The Relationship between the School and the Community," shows that the character of school-community relationships varies systematically on the basis of the characteristics of the school, its community, and the nature of the social commitment made by the school. The second study, "Education and the Integration of Community Services," is concerned with finding methods for defining and fulfilling community needs as attempts are made to integrate services. It consists of an analysis of ten studies from nine countries (New Zealand, United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Japan, Switzerland, United States, Canada, and the Netherlands) that describe and assess integrative or collaborative programs involving education and other community services. The study suggests a structure within which individual countries could undertake the analysis and assessment of integrative programs at the community level. (Author/MK)
Immigrants' children at school by Centre for Educational Research and Innovation( Book )

14 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Statistical evidence produced by a 4-year study of policies for educating immigrants' children in seven Western European countries, Canada and Australia shows that such children are disadvantaged under the present arrangements. This report considers how policies have been working and whether there is a case for some new directions and emphases. It is organized into the following five sections: (1) information on the study, its background, findings, conclusions, and implications; (2) analysis of information on foreign children in Belgium, France, West Germany, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland; (3) discussions of problems in Australia and Canada; (4) discussion of social and cultural inequalities and their causes, with a focus on West Indian and Asian children in England and Wales; and (5) discussion of educational structures for immigrants' children in Europe and outside of Europe. Appendices include graphs on comparative development of nationals and foreigners in schooling; general data on foreign populations; and analysis of the data derived from three samples of pupils used in the study in France.
