International Education Week: Global Comparative Education Panel Discussion

In honor of International Education Week (November 12-16), Semester at Sea sponsored an academic panel discussion on the topic of global comparative education at the University of Virginia (U.Va.). Robert Waters, vice president of academic affairs, will moderated the discussion among panelists Jeff Legro, U.Va. vice provost of global affairs; Les McCabe, president of ISE/SAS; and Lisa Reilly, a previous academic dean and associate professor in the Department of Architectural History at U.Va.

The panelists addressed the following questions: What are the advantages of placing the world’s challenges into a comparative framework? Does, and how does, global comparative education foster increased cross-cultural understanding, collaboration, and create a platform for interdisciplinary discussions and work? How can students get this type of education on their home campuses and/or abroad?
