International organizations play an important role in the development of education around the world. Some have a direct impact on the rights of children and parents in education, while others have an indirect impact by addressing such issues as health, welfare or finance. Prominent among the most influential international organizations are the members of the United Nations family of agencies, although regional development banks and trade union organisations also play important roles. And no mention of international organizations would be complete without reference to the PISA programme of the OECD, although the OECD does much more in the field of education.

The Role of International Organizations in Education provides an introductory background to the operation of organisations that have had a direct and lasting impact on the implementation of educational policy in an international context. The accounts provided give researchers and practitioners to the field an initial account of the organizations, their development over the last seven decades, and their changing influence on the practice of education. By including voices from countries on the receiving end of international policies, the volume also introduces some of the debates that pervade in the field of international education.
Die von Erik Ode und Michael Obermaier herausgegebene Reihe Pädagogische Diskurse vertritt die Erziehungs- und Bildungswissenschaften in ihrer ganzen disziplinären Breite und besteht sowohl aus Monografien als auch aus Sammelbänden. Im Zentrum stehen theoriegeleitete, methodologische sowie praxisorientierte Auseinandersetzungen mit pädagogischen Grundfragen und -problemen, mit den soziokulturellen Bedingungsgefügen von Betreuung, Erziehung und Bildung über die Lebensspanne sowie kritische Analysen ihrer institutionellen und außerinstitutionellen Orte und Praxen.
Die Bildungsfiguren der Moderne
Author: Erik Ode
Bildung und ihre Figuren – ein neuer Zugang zur pädagogischen Grundlagenforschung
Wie kann Bildung sichtbar werden? Mit vorliegendem Band wird erstmalig der Versuch unternommen, über Bildungsfiguren, als plastische und anschauliche Repräsentation pädagogischer Sachverhalte, einen neuen Zugang zur bildungstheoretischen Forschung zu legen. Was Pilger, Künstler, Neuankömmlinge oder Gastgeber im Einzelnen auszeichnet und welche Lehren bzw. didaktischen Impulse aus ihnen abgeleitet werden können, wird mit bedeutenden Denkerinnen und Denkern von Comenius und Nietzsche bis zu Hannah Arendt und Jacques Derrida in dieser Arbeit grundlegend erforscht und im wörtlichen Sinne ‚evident‘.
How the Education System Reacted to the First Wave of Covid-19
The nine chapters in this book explore how the Italian education system responded to distance learning during the first wave of the pandemic. The impact of the hard lockdown on both teaching and learning revealed the inherent weaknesses of a system in which digital technology had only recently been introduced and highlighted the relevant inequalities in their access and use. While students, teachers and families adapted (albeit with difficulty) to the new learning and teaching routines, the institutions faced the challenge of ensuring quality and equality.

By including various case studies and unedited sets of data collected in different areas of the country, the book offers up-to-date insights on the impact of the pandemic on the Italian school system and provides a broad introduction to the educational emergency from a sociological perspective. The volume ends with a post-commentary comparing the Italian case with the similar situation of school closure as it occurred in the United Kingdom.

Why has early childhood science education taken so long to become established as a field of research inquiry? Why do we continue to blame early childhood and primary teachers for their lack of confidence and competence in science education? This book tackles these questions and more.

Grounded in cultural-historical theory, this book explores the development of the field through the eyes of the author. Over 30 years the contexts, the questions, and the foci of a generation of science education researchers are mapped. As the field develops, new concepts, models of teaching and new methods and methodologies are theorised and empirically supported, bringing forward uniqueness of science education for children in play-based settings.
Volume Editor: Amani Khalaf Alghamdi
In March 2020, as the world was still baffled with the unknowns of the COVID-19 pandemic, Alghamdi began documenting how teaching and learning in higher education changed its face as a result of the global health outbreak. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) was first reported from Wuhan, China, and soon swept the world over. Teachers across the globe, including Saudi Arabia, began undertaking a plethora of on-the-ground work to combat and alleviate the impact of the pandemic.

Teaching in the Pandemic Era in Saudi Arabia presents to educators, parents, and other interested readers a variety of perspectives, challenges, and highlights of the teaching methods that could be useful in the era of COVID-19. Its purposes are to not only document an important time of human history, education, and the outbreak of unknown pandemics but also outline strategies to serve as insights into and predictions of the unknown future of humanity, diseases, and human learning.

This book series aims to develop a field of overlapping research that crosses and integrates the domains, disciplines, subjects and themes of cultural pluralism, democracy and social justice. Each theme is taken up individually in many debates but our focus is to bring together advanced and critical analyses that transcend boundaries, languages, disciplines and theoretical and conceptual approaches. We are interested in books that can problematize cultural pluralism in relation to, with and around democracy and socio-environmental justice, especially in relation to education. Our focus on cultural pluralism is intentional, and we aim to move the debate on identity, difference and lived experience forward within a critical lens, seeking to create new, varied and meaningful discussions that go beyond the normative labels of multiculturalism and interculturalism. The literature around education for democracy that underscores political literacy, critical engagement and transformative education is also highly relevant here as is the field of social justice, which examines power relations, laws and policies, structures and experiences at myriad levels. The guiding principles for books in this series include: critical analysis; interdisciplinary; nuanced and complexified thinking; epistemological interrogation; varied research approaches; innovation; openness to international and comparative studies. The books in this series will include case studies, comparative analyses, and collaborations across linguistic, social, ethnic, racial, national, religious and gender boundaries, which may include empirical, conceptual and theoretical frameworks and analysis.
While not an exhaustive or exclusive list, some of the areas that will be of interest for this book series include: Migration, immigration and displacement; Identity and power; Globalization, neoliberalism and cultural pluralism; Critical epistemology; Democracy and diversity; Social justice and environmental justice; Media analyses and studies; Macro-sociological studies; Political ecology; Cultural diversity; Educational change.

The book series “Culture and Education” includes publications about both the theory and the practical implementation of education. The volumes are selected with regards to the manifold connections among different understandings of culture. At a time of the ongoing quantification and numerical comparison of education processes, the publications of this series share the idea that education is a fundamental and anthropological element of man’s culture. The different volumes of this series focus on the idea that the human being is inseparably connected to, and even dependent with and on, learning. However, learning is always realized in specific cultural contexts.
Examples of this are the relationships between education and religion, education and literature, education and politics or education and aesthetics. With this plurality of possible connections in mind, the series broaches the issue of the relationship between culture and education with regards to three distinct methodological approaches.
First, the series includes work on foundational research that becomes manifest in publications about the philosophy of education. Second, the series includes publications on fundamental ideas of education and their realization in different historical constellations and/or significant works on educational theory. Third, the series includes publications which address the relationship between culture and education from a comparative perspective. These volumes attempt to broaden the intercultural discussion on learning as an anthropological constant.

Mit diesem vierbändigen Werk zur Geschichte der Ästhetischen Bildung wird eine Lücke in der Geschichte der Bildung und der Pädagogik geschlossen. Die Beschäftigung mit Kunst, Schönheit, Spiel und Form hatte in allen Epochen der europäischen Geschichte zentrale Bedeutung für die Bildung des Menschen. Ästhetische Bildung war und ist dabei immer eng mit künstlerischer Produktion und ästhetischer Rezeption sowie mit Nachahmung und Kreativität verbunden. In diesem Werk werden zentrale Theorien bzw. Ideen Ästhetischer Bildung im Grundriss darstellt. Die Darstellung ist in vier Zeitabschnitte gegliedert, die Antike und das Mittelalter, die Frühe Neuzeit, die Neuzeit und die Moderne. Die zentralen Autoren werden jeweils unter biographischen und inhaltlichen Aspekten behandelt; die jeweilige Theorie ästhetischer Bildung wird im Grundriss dargestellt. Kulturwissenschaftliche Einführungen eröffnen jeweils Autoren übergreifend einen historischen Rahmen für Lebensformen, Weltanschauungen, Bildungskonzepte und ästhetische Modelle der einzelnen Epochen.>/br< >/br< This four-volume work on the history of aesthetic education fills a gap in the history of education and pedagogy. The preoccupation with art, beauty, play and form has been of central importance for human education in all epochs of European history. Aesthetic education has always been closely connected with artistic production and aesthetic reception as well as with imitation and creativity. In this work, central theories and ideas of aesthetic education are presented in outline. The presentation is divided into four periods: Antiquity and the Middle Ages, the Early Modern Period, the Modern Period, and the Modern Age. The central authors are treated in each case under biographical and content-related aspects; the respective theory of aesthetic education is presented in outline. Cultural studies introductions open up a historical framework for forms of life, world views, educational concepts, and aesthetic models of the individual epochs.
