Theme Evaluation Project
Professor Murray Saunders and colleagues of the Centre for Higher Education Research, Evaluation and Enhancement, Department of Educational Research, Lancaster University were commissioned to run an evaluation project to assess the impact of the Themes on learning and teaching in Scottish higher education.
This team had completed the previous evaluation in 2008. The team members were therefore were well placed to complete the work, on account of their knowledge of the sector and the Themes.
Evidence was gathered using two evaluation activities: a questionnaire survey and through interviews and focus groups during institutional visits in spring 2014.
The final report and a shorter publication of the executive summary of the outcomes are now available and will inform the ongoing work of the Themes.
