Considering a new SIG on teaching comparative education

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

George Z. F. Bereday was enough of a visionary to argue in 1958 that “comparative insights and perspectives should be an every-day equipment of every teacher” (p. 4). He likewise maintained that among faculty teaching comparative education, “there ought to be a greater consensus on what to teach,” because without consensus, “comparative education will suffer from the embarrassment of being unable to explain what this field is supposed to encompass” (Bereday, 1958, p. 4). The authors of this paper agree with Bereday. Thus, in this session, we will propose the formation of a new CIES Special Interest Group dedicated to “Teaching Comparative Education.” This session will serve as a forum for discussing the contours of and garnering support for the new SIG. Potentially, this SIG will be able to offer faculty representing an array of departments and disciplines a space in which to share ideas, methods, practices, and materials for preparing their students to “cope with the growing international responsibilities of education” (Bereday, 1958, p. 4). Our ultimate hope is that through the formation of this SIG, the topic of “teaching comparative education” will have a more prominent place in future CIES conferences, as well as in the field as a whole.
