ED 6010 - Foundations of Education


(ED 4010)
(3)

The purpose of this course is to highlight the interpretive, normative, and critical perspectives on education. Construing education broadly to include both school and non-school enterprises, the course aims to deepen students’ awareness of the social context and social implications of various educational activities. The course draws largely from the disciplinary lenses provided by the social sciences and the humanities, encouraging students to develop their capacities to examine, understand, and evaluate educational policies and practices. The graduate-level course requires independent accelerated additional coursework appropriate for the graduate level.
