V IPEP Winter School considers theories and methods relevant across the field of educational policy research, with a focus on Global Citizenship Education.
Lectures and discussions on theories and methods will be supplemented with hands-on experience on education policy analysis. During the Winter School, all students will be involved in a small case study on global citizenship education, facilitated by fieldwork, and joint data analysis. This approach has proved very successful in the past years, where we have had participants from all over the world, who have been particularly pleased with its strongly practice-based character.
IPEP provides participants with an opportunity to learn about, and discuss:
- The nature and the role of ‘theory’ in the understanding of educational policy
- The relationship between global, national, and institutional policy and governance in education
- The strengths and limits of document analysis, discourse analysis and educational ethnography to investigate education policy
- Current understandings and policy on global citizenship education, their consequences, and educational responses to them
- Urgent education policy issues in the countries represented by the participants
