Dissemination

The dissemination strategy involves internal mutual recognition within the OCCAM network and external dissemination strategies to academic and non-academic audiences.

www.international-education.blog

The blog “www.international-education.blog” addresses OCCAM-related research questions. Both researchers from inside and outside the ETN OCCAM are welcome to publish their work.

The blog “www.international-education.blog” aims to advance knowledge on a) how educational outcomes and quality are measured throughout the world and on b) the educational and political forces that shape learning environments and affect educational outcomes. We aim to publish research related to international assessments like PISA, TIMSS, PIRLS, TALIS, and ICCS including substantive analyses, technical notes, and critical comments. It aims to establish itself as a reliable source for information on comparative education for non-academic audiences (journalists, teachers, unions, and other non-academic stakeholders). To reach international audiences the blog is available in different languages.
