On December 18, 2019 Syed Ahsan Ali and Syed Maratib Ali School of Education (SOE LUMS), held a Brown Bag seminar where Dr. Gulab Khan and Hasham Nasir presented initial findings of their research from a working paper. The study titled ‘Situated Learning, Contextual Differences: Exploring Instructional Implications in a graduate course on School Effectiveness and Development at an Elite Private University in Pakistan’ is based on a qualitative study that Dr. Gulab Khan and Hasham Nasir are conducting on the first offering of the EDU541 course at SOE.
Their paper presents a case study of developing and executing a graduate course on school effectiveness and development to a cohort of students aspiring to change one of the most differentiated education ecosystems in the world i.e., Pakistan. In essence, the paper explores the question of ‘what it means to design and implement a graduate level course in a Master of Philosophy in Educational Leadership (MPhil ELM) program that aims to develop future leaders, researchers, and practitioners in school effectiveness and improvement in a context in the global south?
Dr. Gulab Khan and Hasham Nasir will also be presenting their findings at the 33rd International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement being held in Morocco from 6th-10th January 2020.
