目的・概要

The main objective of this course is to know and discuss about various perspectives on the meanings and functions of education in the society and for individual learners. For that objective, the students will be exposed to the research paradigms, methodologies, and issues of comparative education and relevant academic fields. While the course in the fall semester focused on school-based education, this course will look at educational phenomena in the wider socio-economic, cultural, and political pictures.  The questions to be raised include: What does it mean to educate people? And How is it interpreted from different perspectives? 

 

In the first few sessions, the methodologies and theories will be reviewed as the basis of social analysis of education.  Then, the following sessions will deal with issues regarding schooling, knowledge, and learning.  There is no knowledge which is value-free. Knowledge taught in the official textbooks either. Therefore, in this class, students are expected to acquire the attitude to consider the meanings of education from comparative and multiple perspectives.
