This event has ended.
The OECD PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) has been conducted 5 times since 2000, and the results and survey techniques have so far affected the education policies in each country. Moreover, the result of the OECD TALIS (Teaching and Learning International Survey) 2013, in which Japan took part for the first time, was released in June this year.
At this symposium, we would like to explore how such international surveys have affected past education and teacher policies in each country and how we should shape the future policies.
