European Identity and Teacher Education: IP Udine

2. Juli 2012

Today the first day of our 11 day program on „European Identity and teacher education“ began in this really beautiful Italian Town of Udine. It is infernally hot – at least that is what the Italian newspapers said yesterday with up to 40 degrees celcius in some parts of the country. We will try to buy a fan today or tomorrow in order to make it a little bit more bearable.

This is a very intensive program and we will learn throughout the next 11 days and met and talk and learn from the some of the most important authors and lecturers in the field of comparative education.

Lennart Wikander, who is from the University of Uppsala, where the last years IP was held, gave a short introduction into this years program.

The Erasmus Network on Comparative Education started as Interuniversity Cooperation Network in 1997 became an Erasmus network. It started as student exchange thing. Back then Comparative Education was in crisis. But it became a topic again when people started to use the globalization and bring in new and young people into the field. In the network the participating universities changed and expanded.

The idea was to create a network throughout Europe with comparative researcher to better understand the relationship between culture, economic changes and education. Still a hot topic today as with the current situation in Europe.

One of the ideas was to ask yourself the questions: Are students full members of the university communities? Are they fully allowed do participate in the discussions. And make them full members of the faculty. (more…)

Hier in Upsalla ist es sehr interessant und wir lernen jeden Tag sehr viel über international vergleichende Bildungsforschung. Die großen Bildungsreisenden der Vergangenheit waren auch Poeten und ich möchte hier dieses Gedicht: Dover Beach von Mathew Arnold vorstellen:

the Martin Luther King memorial

the Martin Luther King memorial

Ah, love, let us be true

To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.

* * *

Drum laß, mein Lieb, uns beide treu
zusammenstehn – denn dieser Weltenraum,
der aufzutun sich scheint wie Land im Traum,
so vielgestalt, so schön, so neu,
hat wirklich weder Freud, noch Lieb, noch Lichterpracht,
noch Sicherheit, noch Ruh, noch Schmerzerlasz;
und wir stehn hier wie auf dem dunklen Paß,
wo, voll verwirrten Rufs von Flucht und Schlacht,
sich Heere blind bekriegen in der Nacht

Das ganze Gedicht gibt es hier und mehr Bilder gibt es hier
