Enhancing Higher Education: Policy and Change Processes

EDS845

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 introduce higher education staff to recent research and theorising about learning, teaching and assessment in higher education, and to provide a number of theoretical frameworks and perspectives within which new developments in the organisation of learning, teaching and assessment can be understood.

For employing institutions this module aims to develop staff so that they can critically engage with institutional developments in relation to learning, teaching and assessment at the levels of policy, strategy and practice. It also aims to enable staff to be critical consumers of data provided by student evaluation and feedback mechanisms.
