What is the Role of Evidence in Education Businesses?
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
Over the past few decades a movement calling for better use of evidence in decision making has taken shape, with a focus on the need for ‘evidence-based’ policy and practice. Yet the role the private sector could and should play has largely been ignored.
At this event we will launch a new report by Nesta that explores the role of evidence in education businesses. Nesta CEO Geoff Mulgan will discuss the issues, challenges and opportunities for businesses becoming more evidence-led with Sir Michael Barber, Chief Education Advisor at Pearson.
We invite business leaders, policy-makers, researchers, educators and anyone with interest in education and evidence to take part. There will be opportunity to pose your own questions and contribute to the debate.
Please note: Registration and lunch will open at 12.00 with the event starting at 12.30 prompt.
