A Seminar by Professor Jarl Bengtsson, Pascal International Observatory.
Education continues to be a top priority for governments both at the national and the international level through UNESCO and OECD.
Learning is the mother of education, but still our knowledge about the processes of learning is rudimentary, despite a century of pedagogical research. Recently, neuroscience and brain research have been identified as a promising way forward. Is understanding the brain the birth of a new learning science? Is it hope or reality?
The former Chief Counsellor for Education at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Paris, Professor Jarl Bengtsson, is an expert on education and its links to the economy and society. Under his leadership, the OECD's Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI) carried out wide-ranging research on lifelong learning, the school-to-work transition, the links between education and economic development, and sustainable development.
