Ever since the emergence of education as an academic discipline, educationalists have been interested in comparing education systems, identifying differences and similarities, often with the aim of “borrowing” successful practices from one system to another. The seminar will provide an introduction to the comparative method and how it has been used in the field of education. Topics will be determined in accordance with the interests of participants.
It is possible to acquire between 2 and 5 ECTS (Leistungspunkte) in the seminar.
The seminar will be taught in English.
