Quality Evaluations and the Media

2019 (English)In: The Governing-Evaluation-Knowledge Nexus: Swedish Higher Education as a case / [ed] Christina Segerholm, Agneta Hult, Joakim Lindgren and Linda Rönnberg, Dortrecht: Springer, 2019, p. 103-118Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this chapter is to analyse how results from the 2011 to 2014 national evaluation and quality assurance (EQA) system were communicated to and via the media. First, the analysis focuses on the attempted media framing, as manifested in press releases of national evaluations from the responsible national agencies. Second, the higher education institution-media interactions, in the context of two national quality evaluations from two subject areas (education and specialist nursing), are analysed from the perspective of how four higher education institutions’ attempted framings were (re)presented by the media. The chapter concludes with a discussion pointing to interdependence and possible reinforcement of the media-quality assurance relationship and points to some possible implications for education governing. The chapter also discusses the silences and articulations that could not be detected in the studied data, as situated within the context of reputation management and media display in the contemporary "evaluation society".
