What happens when an international organisation and a MOOC provider join forces with teachers around the world? This presentation focuses on how an online platform brought policy experts closer to the people their recommendations are meant to impact – teachers.

Over 6,000 teachers from 172 countries joined the PISA4U pilot and over 1,500 teachers continued to collaborate for an entire 4-month period. PISA4U tapped into the desire of teachers to contribute and collaborate internationally in a project-based setting and to be recognised for it. How can we ensure this is feeding back into education policy-making in countries?
