Learning in the 21st Century:
Research, Innovation and Policy
The CERI, on the occasion of its 40th anniversary, addressed the state of the art on learning at an international conference on “Learning in the 21st Century: Research, Innovation and Policy”. This conference took place at the OECD Headquarters, Paris, on 15-16 May 2008. It was a forum for the discussion of recent major CERI analyses on Learning Sciences and Brain Research, Innovative Learning Environments, and New Millennium Learners. It also incorporated related OECD analyses on learning and learning environments – the Programme for International Student Assessment      (PISA) and the Programme on Educational Building (PEB).

Teaching, Learning and Assessment for Adults:
Improving Foundation Skills

This study looks specifically inside the programmes for adult language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) learners, with a focus on formative assessment – referring to the frequent assessment of learner understanding and progress to identify needs and shape teaching and learning. Drawing upon evidence gathered in country reports, exemplary case studies and international literature reviews, it examines the impact and implementation of different teaching, learning and assessment practices for adult LLN learners; the way innovative programmes address the very diverse needs and goals of this population; and the policies that support or hinder effective practice.
