ydesen to teach at summer school for phd fellows working with european education policy, practices and outcomes

SUSEES is an annual Summer School in European Education Studies which is held this year by KU Leuven in Belgium. From April 4 to April 6 20 emerging scholars will explore innovation in teaching and research, as they engage in an explorative education laboratory "fostering theoretical and methodological imagination in the field of educational research". PhD Fellows will aim to advance their own efforts conducting European education research. 

At SUSEES senior scholars give lectures using examples from their own research process. Ydesen will present his work using examples on the OECD and UNESCO offering insights into using history and historicizing one's research. PhD fellows will learn how to draw lessons on global education from historical studies.

The summer school is organized this year by Mathias Decuypere, Emiliano Grimaldi and Paolo Landri.
