Economics of Education for Policymakers, Part I
Course Delivery Dates
This course helps education professionals make better use of economics tools when making complex decisions to improve the quality, efficiency, equity and sustainability of education systems. This course is organized into five modules that enhance the knowledge and skills of participants to help them better apply basic economic concepts, such as education as an investment, costs, efficiency, equality and financing.
The modules in this course use multimedia to present key concepts and provide opportunities to apply and discuss these new concepts. By introducing a combination of videos, interactive simulations, research exercises and case studies, the course encourages active participation and stimulates critical thinking and reflection as participants apply the skills and concepts to both the course exercises and their daily work in the education sector.
Participants will be expected to contribute to the online discussion and complete all quizzes for each module. All participants who complete these requirements will receive a certificate of participation from the World Bank Institute.
This course is intended mainly for people who are involved in education reform and who have the opportunity to influence or contribute to important policy decisions throughout the reform process.
