The comparative and international education course archive project: Discerning world-wide trends in the teaching of comparative education

Abstract:

In the first issue of Comparative Education Review in 1957, Bereday speculated that, "Professors using textbooks in comparative education are probably divided into two classes: those who like a comprehensive and systematic treatment…and those who consider textbooks as supplementary reading" (p. 3). Is this still the case? Similarly, in 1963, Bereday offered readers the chance to analyze the syllabus for what was likely the first comparative education course ever taught, Russell’s “Comparative Study of Educational Systems” taught at Teacher’s College during the 1899-1900 school year. How do comparative education syllabi differ today? The Center for Comparative Education at Loyola University Chicago sought to answer these questions when it launched the Comparative and International Education Course Archive Project (CIECAP) in 2003.
This paper will present the results of two CIECAP initiatives. First, we will offer an updated analysis of comparative education (CE) syllabi. Our analysis will consider the theoretical, methodological, and thematic frameworks employed in the teaching of CE, as well as the most frequently cited scholars and commonly used texts. Second, we will present the results of the newest CIECAP initiative, a survey of CE graduate programs worldwide. Specifically, we will discuss how graduate programs define CE, how they prepare comparativists academically, and the settings in which graduates of CE programs seek and find employment.
