Global Communities of Educational Practice
This course affords doctoral students an opportunity to examine educational policy and practice in a region of the world outside the United States. Students examine social policy as it relates to educational systems, pedagogical approaches in educational practice, and funding and governance of educational systems at both the national and institutional level. The course involves a one-day seminar in January, assigned readings, a five-to-seven day visit to the region being studied, a research paper related to some aspect of the course, and a one-day culmination seminar at the end of the term. This course is an elective that does not count toward the 48 required units for the Ed.D. It may be taken multiple times at the discretion of the instructor and/or advisor.
