Book launch: Systems Thinking in International Education and Development: Unlocking Learning for All?

NORRAG is organising a launch event for Systems Thinking in International Education and Development: Unlocking Learning for All? on 8 February 2023 from 14:00 – 15:30 (CET/Geneva). 

The book is the fourth volume in the NORRAG Series in International Education and Development. It brings together new research in the nascent field of systems thinking in international education. Published in January 2023 as an open access title by Edward Elgar, UK, the volume is edited by Moira V. Faul, Executive Director, NORRAG and Laura Savage, Associate Member, Research for Equitable Access and Learning (REAL) Centre, University of Cambridge, UK.

The global education crisis is a complex problem that requires change from teachers, school managers, civil society, implementers, planners, governments and donors. Addressing the issues that lie beneath this crisis requires new ways of working. Systems thinking is a suite of approaches to grappling with complex problems that are beginning to gain traction in international education. The book underlines the urgency, scale and complexity of the crisis of declining student learning trajectories despite significant financial investments and reform efforts and proposes systems thinking as a way of understanding global education crises and facilitating the real change that is needed to achieve SDG4.
