  Course Description
This course provides an overview of research paradigms, methods, and current trends in comparative education. The course exposes students to different theoretical lenses, research paradigms and strategies that are being used to study education in comparative perspective (e.g., sociology, economics, and policy analysis). Special emphasis is placed on large-scale international surveys of educational assessments (e.g., TIMSS, PISA) and their implications for national education policy making and education research in the United States and other countries. We will review a number of recent examples of empirical works that used large-scale cross-national surveys and/or international surveys in comparative education research. This course will enable students to identify strengths and limitations of international comparative research. The topics and issues to be explored include: IEA-/OECD-type Cross-National Comparative Policy Studies; School Accountability, Autonomy, and Choice; Teacher Education, Teacher Quality, and Teacher Policies; and Educational Inequality in International Context. This course will help students to identify gaps in existing comparative research in education and develop research proposals in that take account the global context.
