Brown bag seminar: Equality, Equity, and Educational Prosperity
Welcome to CEMO's weekly Brown Bag seminars in methodology. This week's seminar will be given by Professor J. Douglas Willms from the University of New Brunswick in Canada, and carries the title Equality, Equity, and Educational Prosperity.
Educational Prosperity is an assessment framework that can be used to assess the capacity of a school district, state, or country to develop children’s literacy skills and well-being, to set goals for increasing their capacity, and to monitor progress towards those goals. The framework follows a life-course approach, with key outcomes for each of several stages of development. These outcomes are referred to as ‘prosperity outcomes’. The family, institutional and community factors that drive these outcomes are called ‘foundations for success.’ The underlying premise is that if countries build strong foundations for success for each stage of children’s development, its children will thrive.
The seminar is open to everybody. Participants bring along their lunch, listen to the presentation, discuss scientific topics, give feedback, and socialize.
