Designing International Travel-Study: Reflections on Experience

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



Abstract:

Schooling has become a remarkably similar institution around the world and nowhere has EFA been truly (i.e., equitably) realized (Hamann, Vandeyar, and Sánchez García, 2012). It follows that, for EFA to be achieved, extant understanding of the how and why of schooling need to be disrupted. Comparative education is a first useful vehicle for this, as it makes the familiar strange (Spiro, 1992) but a bigger disruption than this is likely necessary. Travel-study with its liminal, 24-7, intensive, experiential interaction may be a key second element. This final paper uses a design research lens (Design Research Collaborative, 2003; Kelly, 2003) to consider original intentions, design, and then subsequent revision of interwined travel-study comparative education coursework in South Korea in 2012 and South Africa in 2013. Co-written by the leaders of both experiences—each a two-week-plus in country experience accompanied by prior study of schooling and popular culture in each country and followed and subsequent reflective activities—the study considers how and to what extent travel-study and comparative education might be vehicles for helping both undergraduate and graduate education students identify the needed knowledge and practices to erect a schooling system that moves toward EFA. Data reviewed include syllabi, student work, and blogs maintained during both experiences.
