SELF EVALUATION: THE LEARNING PROCESS


AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
SELF EVALUATION AT SCHOOL

BRDO, SLOVENIA 24 – 28 SEPTEMBER 2003


I-PROBE NET
COMENIUS 3


“Self-evaluation is a learning process” is the second international conference on self-evaluation at school organized by the I-ProbeNet network. This year we will give attention to the learning processes in self-evaluation and to the school as a learning organization. We will look at the European and national approach to these matters but also deal with these processes at school, group or individual level.

The following headings will be covered: The target groups are: school teachers, project coordinators, school leaders, teacher trainers, policy makers, inspectors, academics and others interested in the process of self- evaluation at school.

Participants will not only learn about self-evaluation at school, share information with experts and colleagues, get material and tools but will also have opportunities to find partners for cooperation.

Conference chair: Guy Tilkin, Alden Biesen (B)
