COURSE PURPOSE The purpose of this course is to introduce the broad field of comparative, international, and development education (CIDE). Seminar meetings are designed to examine the historical roots and evolution of the field. An overview of the theoretical underpinnings and common methods of research will be discussed, including the rationale for examining education from various geographic, historical, political, cultural, and economic perspectives. After a general exploration of major theoretical and methodological issues, several other CIDE conceptual issues will be addressed. These conceptual issues include a discussion on the dominant educational paradigm, indigenous education, multiple national case study education systems, higher education organizational analysis, education changes associated with demographic trends, and several current education policy issues. COURSE ASSIGNMENTS This course requires the active participation of all class members through presentations, debate, and discussion. It is assumed that you will work with other students outside of class to prepare for in-class discussions and reciprocal-learning opportunities. Readings and Class Participation Comparative education seminar participants are expected to carefully read all assigned readings identified for a particular class session as well as actively and productively participate in class discussions. Come to class prepared to pose questions and offer comments that will facilitate yours and others’ deeper reflection on the issues raised in the readings and the implications these have for educators, policy makers and planners, scholars, and practitioners. Sociology of Education Country Case Study: This is a unique opportunity for class members to either author or co-author an article in the forthcoming edited book Sociology of Education. It is projected to be published by SAGE Publishers in late 2012 or early 2013. Below is a list of 19 countries that can be chosen for this assignment.
