Description

Evaluating Learning in Higher Education

This open seminar explores university quality assurance processes, which often foreground the evaluation of pedagogic practice and student learning. While more broadly, this reflects an international policy agenda where demonstrations of educational quality are integral to institutional transparency and accountability, this seminar presents aspects of two situated postdoctoral projects that enact this emphasis in methodologically distinct ways. After the presentations, open conversation will consider what effects of higher education learning could (or should) be measurable and measured, what methodologies and metrics are most effective and ethical, and what the benefits of measuring learning might be – for students, staff, institutions, and the wider communities they exist within.
