Learning Environments Evaluation Program

Danish Kurani joined other experts from the OECD to review and improve the new Learning Environments Evaluation Program (LEEP). LEEP aims to produce instruments and analysis that inform school leaders, researchers, policymakers and others about how investments in learning environments, including the physical learning environment, translate into improved education, health, social and well-being outcomes, leading to more efficient use of education resources.

How can the physical learning environment – an influential element in the complex and highly contextualized nature of learning – most effectively support the pedagogies, curriculum, assessment and organizational forms necessary to develop students’ capacities for the 21st century? The LEEP framework paper presents the conceptual underpinnings, research base, research questions and implementation of OECD Center for Effective Learning Environment’s new project.
