Evaluating teaching and learning about 'race' and racism

Evaluating teaching and learning about 'race' and racism
Evaluating teaching and learning about 'race' and racism
The paper presents the findings of a one year project which focused on how social work and social science student’ formally learn about ‘race’ and racism whilst in their first year of study. The main aim of the paper is to critically evaluate the methodological challenges faced by the team and examine the following questions: What is the best approach for a quantitative study which allows for measurement of learning over a fixed period of time? How can a matched sample of data be collected on students present in a classroom at both Time 1 and Time 2? Finally, how can significant findings based on small numbers be presented in analysis and reports.

Selected findings are provided in the paper along with ideas for a basic longitudinal quantitative framework, which can be adapted for a range of different substantive areas to evaluate specific learning outcomes.

Abstract

The paper presents the findings of a one year project which focused on how social work and social science student’ formally learn about ‘race’ and racism whilst in their first year of study. The main aim of the paper is to critically evaluate the methodological challenges faced by the team and examine the following questions: What is the best approach for a quantitative study which allows for measurement of learning over a fixed period of time? How can a matched sample of data be collected on students present in a classroom at both Time 1 and Time 2? Finally, how can significant findings based on small numbers be presented in analysis and reports.

Selected findings are provided in the paper along with ideas for a basic longitudinal quantitative framework, which can be adapted for a range of different substantive areas to evaluate specific learning outcomes.
