Also a Door to the inside of a New House--Yet Another Use for Comparative Education
Wolhuter, Charl
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (10th, Kyustendil, Bulgaria, Jun 12-15, 2012)
The author has been involved in cross-national research regarding the motivations of students for studying Comparative Education. A wide variety of motivations were identified, depending on national context. This paper begins by summarizing those findings. On a recent bout as guest professor teaching Comparative Education at a Canadian university, yet another interesting employment of Comparative Education was discovered, namely that of introducing international students (from an extra-Western context) to Western education and its philosophical superstructure and the exigencies of studying at a Western university; thus preparing these students for studying at a North American university. This paper reports on that experience. [For complete volume, see ED567040.]
