First of a series of ANGEL Briefing Papers now available.
The briefing, titled "MEASURING GLOBAL COMPETENCIES: A CRITICAL ASSESSMENT", was written by Joffy Conolly, University of Oulu, Elina Lehtomäki, University of Oulu, and Annette Scheunpflug, University of Bamberg, and is produced as part of an agreement on the activities of ANGEL.
"There is growing interest from policy-makers and educationalists to measure global competencies to ensure that formal education systems develop as necessary for the future. This brief draws on research to map and evaluate the different approaches to global education and their impact on its assessment."
The briefing draws together key conclusions and policy implications, as well as a list of further reading on the topic.
