This subject develops both the analytical and practical skills of students to engage critically with policy-making and navigate policy in their own dynamic workplace environments. Students explore classic and contemporary theories of policy making with an applied focus on education policy research and evaluation. Case studies and real-world examples are used to analyse current trends and issues in educational policy. Issues covered include the contexts and challenges of education reform, policy processes, stakeholder interests and the impact of government policies on opportunities for learning.
