2009 (English)In: Learning Through Ongoing Evaluation / [ed] Lennart Svensson, Göran Brulin, Sven Jansson & Karin Sjöberg, Lund: Studentlitteratur , 2009, 1, 23-40 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This book presents a relatively new perspective of learning evaluation in interactive forms. The question is how long-term effects can be achieved, i.e. a sustainable development with the aid of projects. This is an important question, particularly in the context of EU Structural Funds. In the book learning evaluation concepts are grounded in theory. The majority of chapters also include practical examples of learning evaluation and discuss these in some depth. Important aspects of the evaluation process include the researcher?s or evaluator?s constructive dialogue with the participants, the importance of critical examination, and that approaches shift between proximity and distance. Common knowledge formation is important in a learning evaluation and analysis seminars are presented as a way of achieving this. The book?s target groups include university students in the fields of sociology, education, business economics and management and human resources management. The book could also be used in university courses and in-service training for managers, developers, consultants, project managers and evaluators.
