Education Analytics Service

Education Analytics Service

 

The global learning crisis has highlighted the urgent need to improve the quality of education, which has only become more acute with COVID-19 disruptions across the Indo-Pacific region and worldwide. The Education Analytics Service (EAS) was established in 2016 as a mechanism for the Australian Government's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to access specialist expertise to build staff capability in the education sector, and to boost efforts to respond to demand from country programs.

Teacher development multi-year study series

This multi-year study series, commissioned by DFAT, investigates teacher development initiatives in Timor-Leste, Vanuatu and the Lao People's Democratic Republic. Each country, with support from DFAT, is undertaking curriculum reform and implementing programs to support teachers to improve teaching quality through adopting new pedagogical approaches. The aim of each study is to investigate: To what extent does the Australian investment produce improved teaching quality and improved student learning?

Supporting Resources

EAS seeks to expand learning and understanding about teacher development in the Indo-Pacific region and has created a series of supporting resources to inform the study series and future research.

Learning and Development modules

As part of EAS, ACER developed a series of learning and development (L&D) modules to build and enhance the capabilities of DFAT staff working in the education sector. The 20 modules reflect the latest Australian and international thinking in education for development. Each module has two levels – foundation and practitioner.
