Measuring and Monitoring Literacy: What the data imply for policy in Alberta (2008)

A PowerPoint Presentation

This resource is a powerpoint presentation of 76 slides by T. Scott Murray, Director, Learning Outcomes, of the UNESCO Institute of Statistics. In his presentation, Murray discusses the importance of skills and learning in terms of public policy, particularly in regards to the Province of Alberta. Through the use of charts and diagrams, he looks at the impact of skill at the individual level and in terms of the labour market, economic growth and productivity. He touches on health literacy, skill quality, skill flow, skill change and skill loss and how public policy can influence skill. He concludes his presentation by discussing more specifically what the data on skill imply for Alberta, pressures the province faces, and a possible policy response.
