WISE/EIESP Research on Learning and Well-being: An Agenda for Change: Report (2015)

Main Activities

In partnership with the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), EIESP has published a WISE Research Report on learning and well-being in schools and communities.   The Research Report explores how well-being is defined and measured in international contexts. The project was led by Prof. Marwan Awartani and Janet Looney.

The report "Learning and Well-being : An Agenda for Change" examines how to define, measure and foster learning for well-being in schools and through policies. It analyses six case studies of positive practices from different regions and identifies some of the common principles that can serve as a framework for innovators working in other contexts. Please click here to view the aforementioned case studies. It also develops recommendations to actively promote well-being at the level of international frameworks, national education policies and schools.
