Governance in the education system – international perspectives

04.04.2016

At the AERA Meeting in Washington, leading educational researchers from Germany and the United States will discuss the current state of research.

Experts from major institutions in the field of educational research – mostly from Germany and the US – will convene in Washington on April 9 to discuss governance approaches in school education from an international perspective.

The seminar is organized by the service unit International Cooperation in Education (ice), on the occasion of the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). The event will predominantly focus on the potential offered by digital methods and data assessment in empirical educational research for the purpose of school improvement.

Dr. Joann Halpern, Director of the German Center for Research and Innovation (GCRI) in New York, will open the event. The GCRI is a co-operating partner to the seminar. The introductory note will be followed by a panel discussion on “Data-Driven School Improvement.

The Role of Data for Teaching and Learning“ presenting Prof. Dr. Henry Levin (Columbia University), Prof. Dr. Eckhard Klieme (DIPF), Dr. Jack Buckley (Senior Vice President, College Board) and Prof. Dr. Benó Csapó (University of Szeged). The panel will be hosted by Prof. Dr. Petra Stanat from the Institute for Educational Quality Improvement in Berlin.

The subsequent poster session will display US-American and German research infrastructures, educational research institutions and large-scale comparative educational assessments. Research from the US is represented by the National Center for Education Statistics, the National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards and Student Testing and the College Board, while research in Germany is represented by the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories, the Centre for International Student Assessment, and the Leibniz Educational Research Network.

Participants are then invited to three workshops enabling them to present and discuss their own studies and identify opportunities for cooperation. These workshops will focus on:

1. Leadership and (System) Monitoring
2. Computer-Assisted Progress Monitoring Systems for Whole Classrooms in Primary and Secondary Education
3. Big Data, Little Data – Potentials and Boundaries of Digitization in Educational Research

Interested AERA visitors are warmly invited to take part in the event entitled “International Perspectives on School Governance”. You can find more information about the seminar on the internet, see http://ice.dipf.de/de/veranstaltungen/aera-tagungen/aera-2016

Date: April 9, 2016, 11: 00 hrs to 15:30 hrs
Venue: Marriott Marquis, Level Four, Capitol, 901 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington D.C.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
