Learning, Innovation and Knowledge Exchange (LIKE), a social science lab at Kathmandu University School of Arts, is focused on learning through participation, collaboration, and developing social innovations by adopting research for development in addressing educational issues. With the aim of social transformation at the core, the lab engages with academics, researchers, policymakers and development practitioners to craft effective, scalable, and sustainable solutions to these issues.

Currently, LIKE is focusing on delivering scalable solutions to enhance inclusive access and learning outcomes in education. The issue of learning loss was deepened by the COVID-19 pandemic, where the need for scalable solutions was felt more than ever. Collective efforts to bridge the learning gap and strengthen the overall education system have been underway for a long time. Thus, with the aim of providing space to understand such efforts, LIKE, with the support of the Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (GPE KIX), a joint endeavour with Canada’s International Development Research Center (IDRC), is delighted to host the LIKE 2023 conference: an international conference from September 29 to September 30, 2023, in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The conference title is “The Learning, Innovation and Knowledge Exchange for Strengthening Education Systems.”

This in-person international conference intends to create a platform for the researchers, policymakers, practitioners and wider groups to disseminate the knowledge they have generated in the themes of:

  1. Curriculum, Pedagogy, and Assessment 
  2. Data, Information, and Education System 
  3. Impact Evaluation and Scaling Education Programs 
  4. Digitization of Education 
  5. GESI Dynamics and Education 
  6. Leadership, Administration and Management of educational institutions
