This background report is one of a series of papers prepared by countries participating in an activity of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), “Attracting, Developing and Retaining Effective Teachers.” The focus of the country background reports is on the aspects of teacher policy that deal with how to attract, recruit, develop, and retain effective teachers. The report has the following four objectives:
View all information about these case studies, which were carried out to understand how information communications technology relates to educational innovation. See results from the 22 countries that took part.
E-learning is becoming increasingly prominent in tertiary education, with universities increasing provision and more students signing up. But is it actually changing the way universities teach and students learn?
The project is centred on workshops to review the main aspects of evidence-based policy research, discuss what constitutes evidence for research in education, how that evidence can best be utilized, and possible solutions to challenges observed by participating countries.
The S&T Statistical Compendium 2004 looks at the state of science and technology in the OECD across four broad dimensions: innovation and R&D; human resources in science and technology (HRST); patents; and other areas (ICT, globalisation, industrial structure).
Using a common analytical framework developed by the OECD's E-Government Project, this report is the first in a series of national e-government reviews that will look at ICT use in government and its implementation challenges and governance implications.
