Improving Learning Outcomes for All

The world is in the middle of a learning revolution. The ever-accelerating pace of development and adoption of technology is poised to further disrupt and transform education and learning for people of all ages and backgrounds around the globe. Access to content alone does not directly translate to effective learning, particularly in a world that is being reshaped by systemic changes, such as climate change and biodiversity loss, impacting multiple generations.

About Us

The Global Learning Council (GLC) is committed to advancing the use of science and technology to improve the outcomes for learners of all ages and backgrounds around the world.

GLC brings together thought leaders and practitioners in the effective use of technology to discuss and to help facilitate systems-level solutions and pathways that enhance access to education and improve learning outcomes for people of all ages and backgrounds.

With new leadership, an international secretariat, and a strong team of global advisors and partners with significant domain expertise to help effect systemic transformation in the science and practice of education and learning, GLC has been rejuvenated with renewed mission, scope and action plan.

GLC - HP Global Hackathon on “Ensuring the veracity of AI in learning”

A global hackathon on how to improve learning outcomes and access to technology for all is planned between January and April 2024 in Switzerland, India, Rwanda, and Kenya. The 'hackathon finalists' will give presentations and the grand competition will take place at the GLC Annual Meeting in Villars in June 2024.

GLC Summer University Student Internships at CERN, from Summer 2024

We will provide learning experience to a cohort of STEM-inspired young global citizens with a focus on sustainability in energy and environment over two months. Following the internship, the Common Team Project on Energy Sustainability will serve to nurture and catalyze students' novel ideas for solutions to complex multidisciplinary and intergenerational challenges related to learning outcomes for all, which will be presented at the GLC Annual Meeting in June 2024.

HP Futures, in partnership with GLC

HP Futures is a leadership initiative that fosters and promotes innovative thinking to shape a more resilient, equitable future for education. HP Futures is a multi-stakeholder, multi-disciplinary network of more than 100 international thought leaders from across the education sector - from academia and government to business and civil society.

GLC 2024 Annual Meeting

The GLC convenes thought leaders in its annual meetings, working to develop metrics, best practices and standards for learning systems that enhance learning outcomes. The Annual Meeting brings together GLC members and guests to address these key issues in symposia-like sessions that include formal and informal talks, panel sessions, and breakout sessions.
