It’s all pants

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Through all the talk of facilitation, flexibility, student-centred learning, empowerment, skill development and generic competencies, we have lost focus on what creates a transformative educational encounter. Exam boards, moderation and validation events are not assessing the quality of teaching and learning but rather ensuring that processes are in place to remove bias and favouritism from the system. In the "skills in intellectual analysis" included in the Communication, Media, Film and Cultural Studies document, the following benchmarks are listed: - engage critically with major thinkers - understand forms of communication, media and culture - examine such forms critically - analyse closely, interpret and show the exercise of critical judgment.
