OECD ministers meet in January to discuss possible evaluation of “outcomes” of higher education

Further to our last entry on this issue, and a 15 November 2007 story in The Economist, here is an official OECD summary of the Informal OECD Ministerial Meeting on evaluating the outcomes of Higher Education, Tokyo, 11-12 January 2008.  The meetings relate to the perception, in the OECD and its member governments, of an “increasingly significant role of higher education as a driver of economic growth and the pressing need for better ways to value and develop higher education and to respond to the needs of the knowledge society”.
