Internaitonal perspectives on education policy: august 16th to 20th, 2020 at aalborg university
CfU is proud to host this year's Summer school on international perspectives on education policy. The course is aimed at Ph.d. students, but we welcome advanced master students and postdocs/other researchers are welcome. The summer school is developed in collaboration with the universities of Verona and Nottingham. University College Nordjylland (UCN) will partner up with AAU for the fieldwork. The fieldwork is conducted to provide experience with ethnography as well as maintain a practice-based approach.
From CfU, the faculty of the course includes Annette Rasmussen, Karen Egedal Andreasen and Palle Rasmussen. Marcella Milana (University of Verona), John B. Krejsler (Aarhus University) and John Holford (University of Nottingham) concludes the staff.
IPEP stems from an agreement between University of Verona (Department of Human Sciences) and Aalborg University (Department of Culture and Learning). Verona- and Aalborg University further collaborate with the University of Nottingham (School of Education), and the Institute of Research on Population and Social Policies of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR-IRPPS), co-founders of the International Research Centre for Global and Comparative Policy Studies on the Education and Learning of Adults (IRC-GloCoPoS).
The Summer School explicitly engage with higher- and adult education, but will adjust the aim with regard to participants' profile.
In continuity with past years’ seasonal schools (in Verona), this IPEP Summer School will provide participants with an opportunity to learn about, and discuss:
The nature and the role of ‘theory’ in the understanding of educational policy
The relationship between global, national, and institutional governance in education
The strengths and limits of document analysis, discourse analysis and educational ethnography to investigate education policy
Current discourses on new technologies, their consequences and educational responses to them
Urgent education policy issues in the countries represented by the participants
While participants themselves must pay for travel and accomodation, enrollment and lunch is free of charge! (It is possible to apply for ESREA travel bursary)
