Evaluative Practice in Social Policy Domains: Higher Education

EDS844

Aims

There are two sets of aims for this module, as for the programme as a whole: those for participants, and those for their employing institutions.

For participants, this module aims to equip staff working in higher education with an understanding of the evaluative practices which are embedded in whole sectors, programmes within the sector, within institutions and for the role higher education may have in development nationally and internationally.

For employing institutions this module aims to develop higher education staff in such a way that they become aware of evaluation approaches, methods and theories. It will furnish participants with the capacity to effectively lead the evaluation of change initiatives in their higher education institution and conduct relevant evaluative research to both strengthen the institution and publish in a high status journals.
