I will be at NERA in Copenhagen in late March
Guðrún Ragnarsdóttir will present a paper, which I co-author: Responses of upper secondary school leaders in Iceland to a new curriculum in an ostensibly decentralized system.
This a based on her PhD work and interviews we did among school leaders some time back. She is developing a very interesting perspective showing both the organizational and institutional side of schools and school leaders, co-existing. Quite exciting.
I will present a paper where I continue developing my argument on the credential growth of HE, with special emphasis on the gender difference and the stability of the effect accross cultures and among different social groups.

I will also present a paper on the place of lifelong learning and professional development in the educational discourse. I try to argue that these belong at the heart of an educational system; many people concur with that but not the system itself.
Why formal education, lifelong learning (LLL) and professional development (PD) should be a part of the same educational discourse and thus be squarely placed at the core of the system of education (and why not). 03 NERA JTJ PD 2017 conference JTJ presentation
