Learning Outcomes in universities: how are they interpreted and practiced in Norway and England?
This seminar presents an ongoing PhD project investigating the interpretation and use of learning outcomes in contrasting disciplinary and national settings, as part of ongoing European HE reforms. It focuses on comparative findings from a series of interviews conducted at universities in England and Norway, and suggests ways in which Learning Outcomes, often presented as a key tool for harmonization, are translated and adapted in these contrasting HE settings.
The presentation will also discuss ongoing challenges in the project regarding comparative research and investigating slippery, contested concepts such as learning outcomes.
