The Master's track 'Evidence-Based Education' aims to provide students with a thorough understanding of how educational research can contribute to the development of effective educational innovations and to the improvement of the quality of education. We strive for education that promotes the academic, meta-cognitive, socio-emotional and behavioural outcomes of all students, regardless of their background characteristics and learning abilities. Stable educational improvement can only occur if there is a solid knowledge base to feed educational practice, from macro (e.g., policy), meso (e.g., school organization) to micro levels (e.g., classroom processes). Bridging the gap between research and educational practice requires graduates that can understand, assess and generate solid evidence, and can translate these insights into educational initiatives that are fully responsive to the societal issues and contexts in which they are embedded....

In education, there are a number of different interests to be considered: the interests of the children, their parents, the groups to which they belong (e.g. religious or ethnic minorities), and the interests of society.

These interests are often difficult to define and they can often be at odds with each other. How do we establish what is the best practice or policy? How do we assess and attune conflicting interests or claims? How do we decide in the case of strong differences of opinion and perception?

Educational professionals need to have the competences to analyze and discuss moral, legal and policy-related issues. Some of them need to be extra-proficient in this area in order to be able to advise other professionals, managers, policy makers, politicians, and governments. The Ethics of Education Master's course provides the right learning environment to enable you to develop this extra expertise. You will acquire the relevant competencies and learn to apply these in the professional contexts of research, policy making, and consultancy.... [-]

About

Do you want to disentangle and understand the complex interaction of development, education, and learning? Are you curious about how processes in educational contexts relate to the cognitive and social development of children, youth, and adults? The Master’s program in Educational Sciences: Learning in Interaction invites you to tackle these topics and more.

Education can sometimes be dull and ineffective. We can change that through recognizing and developing the concept that we never learn alone. We always learn by interacting with someone or something, such as:

People who are more knowledgeable than us (teachers or more advanced fellow students) People who are equally knowledgeable as us (peers or in teams) Artifacts (the environment around us, books, computers, etc.) ... [-]
