In partnership with the UNESCO Regional Office in Dakar, the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) is holding its second RAMAA (Recherche-action sur la mesure des apprentissages des bénéficiaires des programmes d’alphabétisation) II Technical Workshop from 28 to 30 March 2017 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
The objective of this technical workshop is to strengthen the capacities of stakeholders from the 12 participating countries to develop reference frameworks. Among others, the workshop will:
- Conduct a critical review of the reference frameworks developed in the first phase of RAMAA as well as the data collected during the first technical workshop;
- Identify similarities and differences of the various reference frameworks of participating countries using a comparative research approach; and
- Share best practices from other reference-framework development programmes, such as the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) and the survey on Information in Daily Life (l'Enquête Information et Vie Quotidienne).
The technical workshop is expected to bring together 30 participants from the 12 countries participating in RAMAA II – Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Morocco, Niger, Senegal and Togo – as well as specialists from UIL, the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the University of Paris.
