Invitation to guest lecture by Thomas Popkewitz on "International Assessments: PISA and the Paradoxes of Models of Change that Conserve"
The talk focuses on the paradoxes of PISA. Its measures of science and mathematics are formed as a chimera, a fiction about science and mathematics that is perceived as real and dazzling but is imaginative, implausible in its stated object of teaching. The argument is historical and about the “reason” of PISA organising the measures.
