Course aim

To critique and contribute to contemporary understanding of effective assessment, evaluation and managing learning, and to build advanced insight into the development learning communities that are ethically, socially and professionally sustainable in a lifelong learning perspective.

Course content

Students will conceptually explore the contested (inter-)relationship between learning and effectiveness as a complex socio-cultural and historical process exemplified by a number of case studies: testing, feedback and the use and interpretation of results gathered and disseminated on different levels (classroom, school, national and international), self-evaluation and judgment practices including moderation (school, teacher and student), the classroom as a complex ecology rather than simply a behavouristic arena for order, punishment and clinical teaching; enacting humane behaviour practices to manage learning environments.
