  5. 5. CERI – some basic facts • Relies on its own ear-marked budget from members plus voluntary contributions, diverse sources • Aims to inform long-term policy development by: – generating forward-looking research analyses and syntheses; – identifying and stimulating educational innovation; – promoting international exchange of knowledge and experience • Approx. 20 staff based in Paris • Programme overseen by a Governing Board of all Member countries, meets bi-annually 5
  6. 6. CERI’s 42 years • 1970s: equality in education, innovation in educational management, curriculum development, recurrent education • 1980s – 1990s: indicators, technology, youth/youth unemployment, environmental education • 1990s: futures (schooling, HE), learning, knowledge/the knowledge economy, the international dimension • 2000s: shift of focus to innovation 6

  8. 8. 2005: Teachers Matter • Countries report serious concerns about : – maintaining an adequate supply of good quality teachers – long-term trends for the teaching workforce (e.g. fewer “high achievers”, fewer males, ageing) – perception of initial teacher education as low quality, with little connection to induction and on-going professional development – high rates of teacher attrition, especially among new teachers 8

  12. 12. Teacher Education for Diversity • Project started in 2009, ending in 2010 • Q: How can we best prepare for diverse classrooms: – pre-service teachers – in-service teachers – teacher educators? • Looking for evidence base, gaps – Building analytic framework: literature review/research synthesis, expert meetings – Adding: views from practitioners 12
  13. 13. Teacher Education for Diversity • Why focus on diversity? – Migration is one of the most important social phenomena affecting 21st century education – Evidence from PISA and other data that migrant students are performing extremely bad in many countries, and are performing reasonably well in others – Evidence from TALIS that there is a great need for pre-service and in-service training for teachers to cope with diverse classrooms 13
