Book launch: Two books on International perspectives on Knowledge
We invite you to celebrate with us the publication of two recent books: "International Perspectives on Knowledge and Curriculum: Epistemic Quality across School Subjects" and "International Perspectives on Knowledge and Quality: Implications for Innovation in Teacher Education Policy and Practice."
We will provide short overviews of each book and offer some reflections on the contributions of each by drawing on the final chapters in particular, and on several of the empirical studies described in each. Finally, we will provide an outline of the development of a comparative framework for the analysis of learning and teaching across school subjects which we have approached by integrating perspectives from the different research traditions of curriculum studies and subject-specific didactics. All presentations are in English.
