New IIEP Learning Portal Advances Global Quest to Improve Learning Outcomes


PARIS - IIEP-UNESCO announced the launch of the redesigned IIEP Learning Portal. This platform has become a reference tool amongst a global community of educational planners and decision-makers who have a shared mission to improve learning. The new site takes on board its user’s feedback and experiences and the Institute hopes that its new interface and features will enable easy access to the latest research, news, and resources on planning education to improve learning outcomes. Its goal is also to bring together education stakeholders from around the world to debate and exchange information on learning issues through forums and webinars, according to the UNESCO.

“The IIEP Learning Portal is part of our response to the global learning crisis affecting a quarter of a billion children worldwide,” said IIEP’s head of research Hugues Moussy. “The resources and sharing of best practices can help education decision-makers ensure that children are not just physically in school, but are learning all of the skills and competencies needed to thrive in the future.”
