Value-Driven and Stakeholder-Based Ranking--A Closer Look at Evaluating "Education for Sustainable Development"
Spitzeck, Heiko; Siegenthaler, Claude Patrick
Higher Education in Europe, v32 n1 p49-57 Apr 2007
Whereas most ranking schemes aim at the identification of the universally best performing universities, value-driven rankings take a focused perspective: they aim at monitoring the progress of some kind of societal agenda based on social values and hence look for progress concerning specific educational contents. The emerging field of education for sustainable development provides a good case for studying evaluation criteria of a value-based ranking. This paper proposes a framework for a stakeholder-based university evaluation and maps the territory of rankings addressing sustainable development. Finally a complementing evaluation is proposed to address identified shortcomings. (Contains 2 figures and 4 footnotes.)
