目的・概要

The major objective of this course is to acquire a comprehensive understanding of theories and practical issues on educational development and international cooperation for it.  The course is divided into two parts.  The first part is to review major theories and dimensions of educational development as an area contributing to the comprehensive national development, economically, socially, or culturally.  This part also focuses on the cooperation/aid by the outside actors, mostly multi- and bi-lateral donor organizations in relation to the historical changes of international cooperation for education from the 1960s up to the present.  Normative trends of educational assistance, oft-used modalities of aid, and challenges of aid will be discussed.  The last part of the course will touch upon issues regarding different aspects of formal education, such as quality of teaching and learning, administration, finance, and decentralization.
