Work Package 3: Survey of young people’s cultural literacy

[Months: 4-34]

Lead: PILAR
Partner institutions: ASTON U, DU, CRRC, MSGSU, UPF, UKBA, SPPU, HAW HAMBUR

The WP will be led by the PILAR and UPF, by utilising their expertise in planning and implementing crosscountry survey research and quantitative data analyses. Researchers at other participating institutions will be involved in the WP in terms of giving input for questionnaire development, preparing and conducting the data collection in their country, as well as analysing national data and producing national reports in line with guidelines and templates. Since the focus of this WP is on young people’s cultural literacy and the role of formal institutions, a large survey will measure young people’s cultural literacy, cultural participation, intercultural dialogues and relevant correlates, as well as the extent to which young people endorse or support the teaching of cultural literacy as evident in national curricula. In each country, a survey will be conducted with a sample (n=2000) of secondary school students aged 14-18 in 30 schools, selected by geography (big urban centres small towns, and rural areas), socio-demographic characteristics, and education institution (e.g. state secondary schools, vocational colleges, specialized schools). Such a survey design will allow data analysis by multilevel modelling, enabling the exploration of relationships among key variables and their determinants at individual, school and country levels. Each national team will be responsible for survey data collection. Country data sets will be added to common survey data file by WP leads.
