The interdisciplinary research field of international and comparative education focuses on the intersection between pedagogy, policy and practice within and across global contexts. The tradition in the field involves the close investigation of transnational, regional, local and institutional dimensions of educational development, planning, delivery and assessment. Researchers in this field apply analytic units of comparison on for example, societal, locational, or individual dimensions to study the transversal of educational place and space.

This Pre-conference Workshop brings together established and new international researchers for professional networking and sharing of skills. The focus is on recognition, regeneration and renewal of the methodologies and analytic methods supporting and enriching comparative educational inquiry.

The workshop offers inspirational keynotes and hands-on workshops that allow for close encounters with empirical approaches and comparative analytic skills training. Participants will learn new data collection- and instrumental techniques and new ways in which to operationalise a comparative research rationale. We invite early career and postgraduate researchers to join our engaging team of experts for a full day program focusing on comparative empirical investigation.

The event is free of charge and provided as an add-on preference to the NOCIES Conference. www.NOCIES.org ICER@SU provides lunch and refreshments for all participants. Places are limited so get in early!
