Committee, Keray Henke

15:00 – 16:30
3. Why Systems Must Innovate their Learning
The aim of Session 2 is to lay out existing priorities and developments in learning and innovation as seen both from the host education system and from the international OECD viewpoints. The keynote will open up to the conference the urgency of innovating learning systems in the 21st century, democratising deep learning across the whole generation of young people, rather than in isolated pockets, and engaging in the innovation that this implies. Both sessions are intended to sharpen the agenda for the rest of the conference while the discussion time will allow the participants from many different countries and vantage points to place their priority issues on the table.

17:00 – 17:454. The OECD/CERI International “Innovative Learning Environments” (ILE) Project:Framing Concepts and Existing Conclusions

TUESDAY, 11th OCTOBER 2011
9:00 – 10:30 [in plenary session]
5. Overview of Innovative Learning Environments in the International Project
The aim of this session is to consider the range of different learning arrangements emerging from the pool of cases being compiled by the ILE project and what they reveal about the dimensions of innovation and the nature of learning within them. The aim is also to consider the most appropriate and useful forms of synthesis in subsequent revisions.
[For reference: the Universe and Inventory Synthesis, the ILE Universe Summary report, and the individual ILE “Inventory” case studies]
10:30 - 11:00 Tea/coffee break
11:00 – 12:30 [in workshops]

Each workshop will be guided by specific questions with the aim of exploring broader issues and potentials, not describe specific cases.

The aim of this session is to examine a number of the transversal issues that are critical to the implementation of 21st century learning environments, and which call for substantial clarification of concepts and aims as well as necessary organisational drive and political will. Consideration of options will extend beyond specific cases prepared for the ILE project.

8. Making Innovations Happen – Insights from ILE Cases and Wider OECD Analysis
This session will form the bridge between the issues discussed on Days 2 and 3 of the conference. It will bring together the experiences reported in the case studies on how the ILEs began and were sustained over time and it will present some of the key insights from the more general OECD innovation analysis.
