III Workshop on Economics of Education: Improving Quality in Education

Inicio: septiembre 12, 2012 Final: septiembre 13, 2012

Sala de Recepcions - Faculty of Economics and Business. University of Barcelona. C/Tinent Coronel Valenzuela, 1-11. Barcelona

Presentación

How can output quality be improved in the educational process? What specific inputs are relevant when educational quality is under scrutiny? A significant amount of research has been carried out in recent years around these questions. This research, in direct connection with the design of educational policies, should be taken into special consideration in the current context of budgetary restrictions. The intended aim of this workshop is double: on the one hand, to establish and share the theoretical and methodological knowledge frontier in the analysis of the determinants of educational quality. On the other hand, to have access to a diversity of applied studies in which different methodologies are used.

Original research papers that cast some light on these issues, especially those from an economic perspective, will be brought together at the Workshop. Although the focus is set on empirical papers, theoretical studies are also welcome. The accepted papers (10) will be presented in plenary sessions that will complement the two keynote speakers’ presentations.
