2014-11-05 RCIW:s danska samarbetspartner får utvecklingsmedel

Den danska A.P. Møller Fonden har avsatt 1 miljard danska kronor för forskningsbaserad utveckling av den danska grundskolan att användas under den närmaste tioårsperioden. I den första ansökningsomgången fick RCIW:s samarbetspartner LSP vid Aalborgs Universitet god utdelning. Lars Qvortrup, professor och föreståndare för LSP skriver:

“The Danish Maersk Foundation has decided to fund our research-informed school development project with DKK 21 million. In addition the 12 participating municipalities will contribute with another DKK 7.8 million. In total this is DKK 28.8 million, which equals US Dollars 4.8 million.

This is by far the biggest school development project in Denmark. It will start on January 1 2015 and will continue for four years. It involves 12 municipalities with 10 percent of all primary and lower secondary public schools (and 10 percent of all students and teachers) in Denmark. The basic idea is visible learning and capacity buidling. It is based on questionnaires to all students, teachers, school leaders and parents, from which we produce school district, school and class profiles (on learning and inclusion achievements etc.) and quality reports for the participants and empirical research data for ourselves.”

I projektets vetenskapliga råd sitter bl a Niels Egelund Aarhus Universitet, John Hattie University of Melbourne, Michael Fullan University of Toronto och Bengt Persson från RCIW.
