Evidence-based policy-making in education & training: a forced marriage between education and research?
August 12 – Aachen: LLLP joined the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI) conference on ‘Thinking Tomorrow’s Education’.

European Commission President-Elect Ursula Von der Leyen unveiled the new Commissioners’ portfolios in today’s press conference. We are sad to see that education and lifelong learning are not accorded their rightful place and visibility in this proposed Commission and are mentioned only as part of the wider ‘Innovation and Youth’, which erases in a blind hit also culture, sports and research. Mariya Gabriel (Bulgaria) will have the difficult task to make education policies arise from the whirlwind of innovation and […]More
