Building Evaluative Capacity For Equity And Inclusive Learning Environments

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


The presentation presents findings from a case study, which investigated the work with building evaluative capacity in Early Childhood and Education (ECEC). Evaluative capacity building (ECB) can be seen “as an s an intentional process to increase individual motivation, knowledge, and skills, and to enhance a group or organization’s ability to conduct or use evaluation” (Labin et. al., 2012: 308). ECB in an ECEC-context can be seen as an ongoing process of building knowledge, skills, and attitudes to engage in an ongoing improvement work with the aim to create equity and inclusive learning environment for all children. ECB aligns with the new Danish Day Care Act and its revised national curriculum, which has a strong focus on professionalism, leadership, systematic documentation and evaluation, including the use of data and research based knowledge as a trigger for reflection, analysis and development of improvement strategies (Børne- og Socialministeriet, 2018).
