2nd Annual Conference: Can Virtues be Measured?

Can Virtue be Measured?

9th – 11th January 2014, Oriel College, Oxford

The second annual conference of the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues, University of Birmingham.

How can we derive credible measures of virtue? How can we ensure that such measures are reliable and that they have real-world (predictive and concurrent) validity? Or is the demand unreasonable? Have we, by demanding that virtue be assessed, succumbed to a culture of instrumentalism, testing and accountability, inimical to real education? The purpose of this conference was to contribute to these debates and map out avenues of research on the evaluation of virtue-based education programmes
