Collaborative Specializations
 

Our three Collaborative Specializations provide students with exposure to cross-field and cross-disciplinary approaches to educational problem framing, and problem solving to broaden the possibilities for innovative and effective interdisciplinary analysis.

Collaborative Specialization in Comparative, International and Developmental Education

CIDE is one of the world's largest, most diverse, and dynamic graduate collaborative specializations in the field of comparative education. Faculty interests span an exciting range of theoretical and practical issues--from the study of ethnicity and identity to the issues of globalization and global governance; from non-formal learning and citizenship education, to concrete problems of educational reform, social equality, language education, conflict resolution, and community development.

Collaborative Specialization in Educational Policy

The Collaborative Specialization in Educational Policy Program (CSEP) at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto serves students interested in educational policy development and implementation, with particular emphasis on improving educational process. CSEP provides students with exposure to cross-field and cross- disciplinary approaches to educational problem framing and problem solving to broaden the possibilities for innovative and effective policy analysis.

Collaborative Specialization in Workplace Learning and Social Change

This specialization is designed for students interested in developing their understandings of work and learning trends in Canada and internationally, with a focus on social change. This specialization situates workplace learning within broader social trends such as globalization, neo-liberalism and organizational restructuring. As well, the program allows for an exploration of the connections between learning as an individual phenomena and learning as a social/organizational and public policy phenomenon. It aims to highlight the learning strategies that seek to foster social change through greater equality of power, inclusivity, participatory decision-making and economic democracy.
