The Seminar Assessment and Didactics. State of Play and Perspectives, will be held on March 7, 2024 (Thursday) in hybrid mode. The event is organised by OP.Edu – the Observatory for Education and Training Policies in collaboration with the Autonomous Section for General Education and Training of NOVA University of Lisbon – School of Social Sciences and Humanities, in partnership with the António Sérgio Training Centre.
Taking as its starting point the recent publication by Peter Lang of Évaluation et didactique : un dialogue critique by Daniel Bart, this seminar aims to open up a space for analysis and debate on issues related to the epistemological status of an assessment discipline, its more scientific, more practical or more political character, and its relationship with didactics.
Experiences – both in France and Portugal – of interdisciplinary intersection will be presented, and the didactic challenges of assessing competences will be analysed. On the other hand, considering that didactics and assessment of students’ knowledge are not always considered in harmony, with direct implications for the relationship between the two, some of these relationships will be problematised, including socially shared perspectives, how teachers take ownership of the relationship, and the different visions that assessment can take in relation to didactics.
PANEL 1 – 3.00 p.m. to 5.15 p.m (Lisbon time)
Assessment and Didactics: A Critical Dialogue
PANEL 2 – 5.30 p.m to 7.00 p.m. (Lisbon time)

The Seminar PISA 2022. Discourses, the truth of numbers and post-pandemic changes in education will be held online on 11 January 2024 (Thursday). The event is organised by OP.Edu – the Observatory for Education and Training Policies in collaboration with the Autonomous Section for General Education and Training of NOVA University of Lisbon – School of Social Sciences and Humanities.
One month after the OECD – Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development – published the results of the latest edition of PISA – Programme for International Student Assessment, the seminar aims to open a space for exchange and informed debate on the regulation of education policies through the so-called International Large-Scale Assessments (ILSAs), of which PISA is the most iconic representative.
Main topics to be discussed: PISA 2022 results and the post-pandemic changes in education; the relationship between Portugal’s participation in PISA and the improvement of its equity levels; the PISA discourses and the conceptual and methodological limitations that the Programme has placed on education research.

The seminar has as theme the Public Higher Education in Brazil, addressing in particular two issues: expansion and dropout. On the first aspect, it aims to make a regionalized analysis of the expansion of the Federal Institutions of Higher Education in the territory with reference to the volume of enrollment and the profile of graduates. By publishing a detailed examination of the regional profile of in-person undergraduate students, we expect to demonstrate the significant contribution that this public policy of higher education has made to the process of social inclusion, research and professional training in Brazil. Dropout will also be addressed, problematising the current use of definitions and measures to evaluate institutions. Such uses have often been aligned with a quantitative, fiscalist and with a markedly colonial perspective.
This seminar is part of the activities of Op.Edu | Observatory for Education and Training Policies, in partnership with CC.EDU | Working Group on Citizen Science and Education
It will take place on the November 8, in CES Alta – Room 1 – starting at 10:00 AM – the Roundtable Anti-Opressive Education Practices
This roundtable intends to promote a dialogue about teaching practices based on an anti-oppressive conception of education. It will be a space to debate pedagogical practices that challenge the hierarchies that maintain social inequalities through unequal power relations and that, therefore, seek to confront injustices that marginalize and harm individuals and social groups.
The roundtable will start with an initial presentation on some examples of anti-oppressive educational proposals developed in the context of a doctoral research project. Afterwards we will discuss the urgent need to expand and consolidate anti-oppressive educational practices in a more global context.
