Ednovate Pakistan: A Dialogue Fostering Evidence-Driven Innovation in Education

Hosted by: Center for Economic Research Pakistan (CERP) & LUMS School of Education
Date: Tuesday, July 11, 2017
Venue: Lahore University of Management Sciences, Auditorium B1


Pakistan’s education ecosystem represents a diverse set of actors and approaches – ranging from public to low-cost private schools, from individual school owners to national policymakers and technologists – but all have the same goal: improving education outcomes for students. Yet the significant findings and successful techniques developed across these groups have not been scaled to the extent required to improve education quality for all across Pakistan. Innovations remain siloed and evidence from the field is not being used to drive policies and practices.

This event will bring together key thought leaders and decision makers in the Pakistan education sphere to engage in intersectional dialogue on the value of (i) evidence-driven decision making and (ii) an innovation-based Education ecosystem, with the aim of creating a coalition of stakeholders and partners who will champion education innovation and research in Pakistan.
