Sydney Ideas: Dean's Lecture Series

WHEN 'WHAT WORKS' DOESN'T – COMPARATIVE PEDAGOGIES AND EPISTEMOLOGICAL DIVERSITY IN EDUCATION

16 November 2016Register online

The Sydney School of Education and Social Work Dean’s Lecture Series provides an opportunity to hear internationally renowned experts as they contribute to the debates and discussions in education, social work and social policy. The lectures are free and open to the public.

The educational landscape today is marked by numerous texts for teachers that identify ‘what works’ in the classroom and ‘best practices’ for bolstering student achievement in different subjects. Although these guides may provide valuable information for educators, they frequently ignore a central imperative of critical studies in education to situate educational knowledge within the contexts in which it is produced.

This lecture draws upon research at the intersection of postcolonial studies, anthropology of education, and global and comparative education to address a vital question: How do different epistemologies and material conditions of teaching affect educators’ conceptions of ‘good teaching’ and its potential enactment in their schools?
