WORKING WITH, AGAINST AND DESPITE GLOBAL ‘BEST PRACTICES’: EDUCATIONAL CONVERSATIONS AROUND THE GLOBE
Sarfaroz Niyozov, Associate Professor, CIDEC, OISE, University of Toronto & Paul Tarc, Associate Professor, RICE, University of Western Ontario
What are global best practices? What is the character of these so-called best practices, their conceptual underpinnings and routes of assemblage? Which ‘best practices’ are travelling, how, and to which ‘local’ educational domains? How are they interpreted and engaged in local contexts and what are their effects? And ultimately, how are progressive and critically-minded educators to work with, against and despite global ‘best practices?’

President Meric Gertler has announced immediate steps the University of Toronto is taking to help deal with the Syrian refugee crisis.
Gertler said U of T will partner with York University and OCAD University to participate in a Ryerson University initiative to bring Syrian refugees families to Canada. Through the Ryerson University Lifeline Syria Challenge, 25 Syrian refugee families or 100 people would be sponsored. (Learn more about the Challenge.)
U of T/CIDE/AECD/LHAE Professor Shahrzad Mojab, internationally known for her work on the impact of war, displacement and violence on women’s learning and education, said the initiatives were “fantastic. They are really very, very timely.”
Mojab recently received a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council to conduct a study that is entitled: “Youth in Transition: War, Migration and Regenerative Possibilities.” The four-year study will include a trip to Turkey to liaise with networks involved in conditions for migrants there. There are about 1.7 million Syrian migrants in Turkey, about 20 per cent of them children.
The U of T initiatives “represent our intellectual, political and ethical response to a colossal human suffering,” Mojab said.

Teachers inCIDE SIG calling for new members!!!
Teachers inCIDE is a graduate student interest group (SIG) at OISE that focuses on inquiry related to teachers and teaching from a comparative, international and development perspective. It promotes a peer support environment for graduate students’ research journey. Through reading and discussing research articles as well as conversations with different CIDEC-affiliated professors, we aim to broaden our understandings of teachers' lives and work. If you are interested in joining the group, please send an email to email@example.com. We thank you for your interest.
CIDE Study Groups
We are a group of graduate students and professors from different departments at OISE who share an interest in teacher education, teacher development/learning, and comparative, international and development education. We meet twice a month at OISE. During our meetings, we share updates about our research, lives, thesis works/progress; discuss common issues of interest; exchange resources; and learn from each other.
