Measuring Innovation in Education 2023
Tools and Methods for Data-Driven Action and Improvement
Measuring innovation in education and understanding its drivers and obstacles is essential
to improve the quality of the education sector – and of specific educational establishments.
Are pedagogical and administrative practices changing in the expected direction? Do
educational institution have a positive innovation culture that supports innovation?
What are the drivers of innovation that policy makers or institution leaders could
influence to achieve the systems’ educational objectives? How much do countries invest
in educational research?
This book proposes insights and tools to policy makers and education leaders willing
to drive change based on data and evidence and new tools and methodologies for education
policy makers and institution leaders to answer those questions. Based on the research
literature and the long experience of innovation and research surveys, these tools
are meant either for a statistical collection or to engage in self-reflection at the
institutional level. Three aspects of innovation are covered: educational innovation
at the system level, innovation culture within educational institutions, innovation
towards equity in education. A questionnaire to measure educational research and experimental
development expenditures and implementation and new methodologies to measure certain
aspects of educational innovation and educational research based on big data and bibliometrics
are also presented.
