Oxford Policy Management consultants speaking at 2017 UKFIET conference
Several consultants from OPM’s Education team are speaking at the 2017 UKFIET conference (5-7 September 2017). The biennial conference takes place in Oxford, and this year’s theme is ‘Learning and Teaching for Sustainable Development: Curriculum, Condition and Context’.
In another competitive year for abstracts, 13 consultants from OPM will be presenting and sharing their research and thinking with other education specialists from across the world: the UKFIET conference brings together representatives of bilateral and multilateral agencies, consultancy firms, international NGOs and universities.
Below is the list of panels on which representatives of OPM will be speaking, as well as those from the OPM-led project Education, Data, Research and Evaluation in Nigeria (EDOREN). For more information, the full timetable can be found on the UKFIET website, which also has further details about the conference.
