1 Self-evaluation: teachers and pupils should benefit, before inspectors do Geert Kelchtermans Center for Educational Policy and Innovation University of Leuven

2 Dialogue for development Conditions Documenting events and their intepretations Reflective analysis and dialogue that moves beyond the instrumental and includes * the emotional dimension * the moral dimension * and the political dimension

3 Aim: -Framework for better understanding what is happening -Better be able to guide and support SE so that it really contributes to professional development Invitation: look (again) at the particular examples of SE you are familiar with and see whether you recognize the moral and political… and as such engage in further dialogue

4 O verview: 3 parts Facing the ethical Facing the (micro)political Towards narratives of good practice

5 1. Facing the moral in SE - Core question: what is good education? (Norms?) - doing justice to the educational needs of their pupils ! broader than being externally « accountable » or instrumental effectiveness (means to ends) « It is time we had a new kind of accountability in education – one that gets back to the moral basics of caring, serving, empowering and learning » (Hargreaves & Fullan)

6 - No universal answers to the question of educational quality… and even if there were « translation to the context » is needed. - Basis for judgement is task perception (personal professional identity)

7 Consequences: -Vulnerability is inevitable in the teacher job: Experience that one’s professional identity and moral integrity are being questioned Latent characteristic of the job Manifestion (actual experience) and possible negative emotional effects depend on interaction with the context

8 - SE is risky business because deeply held beliefs are at stake and therefor teachers’ themselves (their sense of identity). Explains resistance Sense of being threatened

9 Conclusion: DIALOGUE in trustful conditions can sharpen awareness and deepen understanding through conversation that goes beyond the level of describing facts, but opens up to the underlying issues of personally held opinions, values, beliefs that frame teachers’ interpretation and actions.

10 2. Facing the (micro)political Moral issues often hide political ones: who is to define good education? SE triggers issues of power, influence natural part of an organisation’s life

11 Micropolitical perspective: the behaviour of members in an organisation is to a large extent driven by interests. What are those interests in the case of teachers/schools? How do they play out in practices of self evaluation?

12 THE MICROPOLITICAL PERSPECTIVE Micropolitical actions aim at Establishing Safeguarding Restoring desired working conditions

13 Constitute professional interests: - Material -Organisational -Social-professional -Cultural-ideological -Self

14 Categories of professional interests Material interests: Availability of and access to teaching materials, funds, specific infrastructure and time Organisational interests Procedures, roles, positions and formal tasks within the school as an organisation Cultural-ideological interests More or less implicit norms, values and ideals that get acknowledged within the school as legitimate and thus “binding” elements of the organisational culture

15 Categories of professional interests Social-professional interests Character and quality of the interpersonal relations within and around the school as an organisation Self interests Professional integrity and sense of identity (professional self)

16 3. Towards a narrative account of good practice a. The power of the narrative: Describes events and actions in context Presents interpretation (meaning) Presents e-valuation

17 b. An example of « good practice » NOT a success story story unravelling the struggles, the problems and the efforts made to overcome them (better understand the issue) shares the analysis: why did things work out the way they did? Dialogue for understanding and checking its validity Allows for CRITICAL selfevaluation

18 c. Making the narratives public: possibly inspiring other schools - Is a valuable endeavour for the staff involved (directly connected to core business) - Constitutes a « rich description » (Geertz), a valuable set of evidence that external evaluators (inspectors) can benefit of

19 In education there is always happening at the same time both more and less then one had in mind and aimed at
