Session Description

While India’s school system has expanded exponentially in the last decade, learning outcomes are still lagging behind expectations. Questions lie in the quality of delivery and learning models that are readily replicated across schools nationwide. It is therefore necessary that the proposed NEP engages a critical perspective by looking at the process of developing education models and interventions.

In this closing plenary, key voices in India’s education sector come together to unpack how evidence-based evaluation and improved feedback channels, combined with real-life experience, can tackle this issue at its core. In doing so, it will unearth further opportunities for the convergence of public and private resources to deliver better educational outcomes.

Key Takeaways:

  • What are some learning models that have been successful and scalable in using effective evaluation programmes?
  • For greater adoption of evidence-based approaches, there needs to be greater appreciation of the value of evidence across public and private sectors. What are the structural preconditions for an evidence-based culture to flourish? How do we engage to successfully create this culture of evaluation?
  • What is the role of social investment in supporting ministries and education public and private players to integrate evidence-based practices in the funding and implementation of interventions?
