Reconceptualising Evaluation in Higher Education: The Practice Turn Hardback
Part of the SAP series
"I congratulate the authors on what I believe will be a very interesting and useful book.
The language is accessible and the structure of the argument is coherent and consistent...
This is a very interesting and significant contribution to the field of higher education in general and scholarship in evaluative practices in particular." Judyth Sachs, Deputy Vice Chancellor and Provost at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia.A considerable amount of time and effort is invested in attempts tocontrol, change and improve the higher education sector.
Theseattempts involve evaluative practice, but we have not yetconceptualised the evaluations that take place so therefore theopportunity to understand the value and nature of different typesof intervention is frequently missed.
This book seeks to dismantle traditional boundaries in approachesto evaluation, assessing how value and worth is attributed toactivities in higher education.
It looks at evaluative practice inHigher Education rather than the evaluation of Higher Education.Reconceptualising Evaluative Practices in HE: The Practice Turn aims to aid understanding, drawing on a set of evaluative practices from the UK and internationally.
The book will be of value and relevance to higher education providers and policy makers within higher education.ContributorsVeronica Bamber, Margo Blythman, Val Chapman, Bernadette Charlier, Rob Cuthbert, Harry Hubball, Kerri-Lee Krause, Neil Lent, Alan McCluskey, Ian McNay, Joan Machell, John M.
