This event will be held in English with simultaneous interpretation into French (only in English via livestream)

A 21st century education must look beyond the typical academic and technical skills. In a rapidly changing world and growing automation in the work place, the development of social and emotional skills is crucial. This includes understanding and managing one’s emotions, working easily with others, and the ability to demonstrate empathy, amongst others. While this is important for the well-being of an individual, these skills foster global citizens who can contribute to a sustainable and well-functioning society. However, a lack of reliable metrics has made it difficult for educators and policy-makers to advance in making this commonplace in both formal and informal learning settings. To help change this, the OECD has recently launched a new study on the social and emotional skills of school-aged children.

There is widespread recognition of the global learning crisis, with millions of children and youth unable to perform basic skills in reading, writing, and math. What is less clear is what children need to learn and how we can foster all-inclusive quality education for a rapidly changing future. In pursuit of SDG 4, we must look beyond the obvious and debate new ideas and strategies that will ultimately redefine learning while ensuring accessibility for all.

To help advance these conversations, IIEP is pleased to announce its 2018 Strategic Debate series. Under the title, Meeting SDG 4’s learning objectives: looking beyond the obvious, an array of experts in the education field will come to IIEP over the coming months to debate salient issues around SDG 4 and put forth new solutions and ideas on what is really required to make this bold vision for education a reality.
