Dr Christopher Wiley publishes article on module evaluation surveys in Studies in Educational Evaluation journal

Leave a comment

X0191491XDr Christopher Wiley has published an article on standardized student evaluation of teaching in the peer-reviewed journal Studies in Educational Evaluation (ISSN: 0191-491X).

Dr Wiley’s article, ‘Standardised module evaluation surveys in UK higher education: Establishing students’ perspectives’, explores the views of student representatives at a single university.

Originally developed in partial fulfilment of the degree of MA in Academic Practice, this research indicates that standardizing module evaluation limits its applicability to local contexts, and that caution should be exercised over interpreting its results in isolation.

Dr Christopher Wiley has contributed two articles to the latest issue of Women’s History, the journal of the Women’s History Network.

The special double-issue, ‘1918-2018’, was dedicated to the women’s suffrage movement in the centenary year of women gaining the parliamentary vote in the UK, and features essays by a range of leading scholars of women’s history.

Dr Wileys first article, ‘Ethel Smyth, Suffrage and Surrey: From Frimley Green to Hook Heath, Woking’, combines women’s history and local history in order to illustrate how the suffragette campaign was highly dependent on rural locations through the example of Ethel Smyth.

His other article is ‘A Fresh Start and Two (More) Portraits: Theatrical Shows on the Life and Work of Ethel Smyth for 2018’, a review-article of Ethel Smyth: Grasp the Nettle and Ethel Smyth: A Furious Longing (the latter having been co-written by Dr Wiley).
