Learning in a changing world: Evidence, innovation and creative thinking in education

Connecting research, policy and practice through effective evidence brokering

Jun 19, 2024 | 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

OECD Conference Centre Room CC9


For policy makers and practitioners to thoughtfully engage with research evidence, brokers and intermediary organisations play an important role. They support researchers to generate evidence and facilitate its use in policy and practice. This session looks at the growing body of research on what it means to be an effective broker, why it’s not yet being put into practice and how education systems can support better use of intermediaries. Discussion questions: • What is the role of intermediaries in supporting policy and practice to engage with research evidence? • How can intermediaries and brokers do their work effectively? • What can education systems do to support the intermediary ecosystem and improve the systematic use of evidence? Session Chair: José Manuel Torres, OECD Presentation • Nóra Révai, OECD Small group discussions in 2 rounds Expert facilitators: • Miquel Angel Alegre • Tracey Burns • Maria Hyler • Jonathan Kay • Mark Rickinson • Melissa Mouthaan • Rien Rouw • Jonathan Sharples • Annika Wilmers
