Conference: Quality in Education

How can we improve the quality of education and make it more accessible? What is quality in education? How can teachers, school leaders and policymakers improve the quality of education while at the same time addressing issues of educational equity? These are some of the key questions addressed at this conference.

The Center for Educational Leadership and Excellence welcomes you to a conference on educational quality. The conference will feature presentations and discussions on current research as well as opportunities to interact with researchers and education policy professionals in an open and friendly space at the intersection of educational research, political science, economics, and sociology.

Date and Time: Friday May 12, 2023. 9:00-17:00, followed by dinner. 

Location: Stockholm School of Economics, Stockholm, Sweden, Sveavägen 65, Room KAW.

We have two distinguished keynote speakers joining us for the conference. In the morning session we will hear from Dr. Patricia Bromley, Associate Professor at Stanford Graduate School of Education. Dr. Bromley's research focuses on global educational policy, educational reform, and textbooks. She is familiar with education in the Nordic countries from research stays in Uppsala, Oslo, Helsinki and Stockholm.
The afternoon keynote will be delivered by Dr. Matthew Kraft, Associate Professor in Education and Economics at Brown University. Dr. Kraft's research focuses on educational policy, with a particular emphasis on the role of teachers and school leadership in improving educational outcomes, and how policies can improve teacher hiring, professional development, evaluation, and working conditions.

This conference will bring together educators, researchers, and leaders in the field of education. Presentations in the morning sessions are divided into two tracks: School Leadership and Educational Equity.
