1 - Educational Facts in the Making? International Large-Scale Assessments in Research, Mass Media, and Policy Discourses

Mon, April 8, 10:25 to 11:55am, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Floor: 200 Level, Room 206D

Session Type: Symposium


The purpose is to produce a deepened understanding of education, science-society interaction and “post-truth knowledge”. It presents theoretical and empirical analyses of the interplay between knowledge production, agents, practices and positions at an “education agora”. Theoretically, the session is based on research traditions that integrate Science and Technology Studies (STS) and political sociology of knowledge. International Large-Scale Assessments are our empirical focus in national and international discourses. Agora is a concept referring to contextualization of research in a coproduction of science and society. Well-grounded analyses of the education agora are vital for improved understandings of educational research contextualization, of premises for knowledge production and for dealing with post-truth challenges and intellectual engagement concerning uses and abuses of educational research.
