Toward Universal Learning: Recommendations from the Learning Metrics Task Force presents the full set of recommendations of the Learning Metrics Task Force, a multi-stakeholder group of 30 organizations that met from July 2012 through September 2013.

The second report, A Global Framework for Measuring Learning, presents a vision for how learning should be measured globally. Finally, the third report in the series will be released in November 2013 and will address how the measurement of learning can be implemented to improve education quality.

Rethinking Education

- Rethinking Education: Towards a global common good? 

Recognizing the emergence of a new global context of learning the Director-General of UNESCO established a Senior Experts Group to rethink education in a changing world. The result of the work of the group is presented in Rethinking Education: Towards a global common good? (2015). In the spirit of the landmark publication Learning: The treasure within (UNESCO 1996), the report of the Senior Experts Group reconsiders the purpose of education and the principles that govern education and knowledge as common goods. The publication is intended a call for policy dialogue and as a platform for research on the future of learning.
