In this seminar, we communicate bilingually in English and German. The aim will be to introduce the field of inter- and transnational comparative educational research and to gain an overview of selected school systems and their functions.
Furthermore, we will focus on inclusive school and classroom development in selected countries. For this purpose, we will use literature and other materials in primarily English/German language as well as the database of the ‘European Agency for Special Needs and Inclusive Education’ and video material from several European countries of the ‘TdiverS’ project (partly in original language with English subtitles).
Inclusive education has become a global norm, so that the debates on inclusive school and classroom development also have stronger international and transnational references. Therefore, we will start with an overview of (theoretical and methodological) questions and approaches of inter- and transnational comparative educational research. In addition, we will focus on general characteristics and properties of education in order to be able to reflect on the functionality of national systems against this background. One of the aims is to understand inter- and transnational phenomena in education in their respective political, cultural, social and historical contexts.
Among other school systems, we will focus on the school systems of Germany, Sweden and Spain and their inclusive school and teaching developments. In doing so, the inter- and transnational perspective will help us to look at the persistence on the one hand, but also at the contingency of educational institutions and systems on the other hand and to critically reflect on the (im)possibilities based on the normative rules of school and teaching.
In this seminar, students gain an understanding of the inter- and transnational connections of the modern school system. Global processes can be reflected upon against the background of the local. Questions of human rights and their influence on national systems and local practices, among other things, play a role here.
Students thus learn to reflect on (im)possibilities of inter- and transnational research in the field of education and expand their knowledge of global educational phenomena. In addition, students can reflect on the persistence and contingency, i.e. the (im)possibilities of school and education both inter- and transnationally. In this way, students can be sensitised to (their own) actions in fields of education and reflect on inclusion as a reform project 'at home' and in the world.
