Conceptualizing International Development Education: Sector-Wide Reform and Globalization of Teacher Education. Presentation in the Development Management Policy Seminar, Graduate School of International Cooperation Studies (GSICS), Kobe University, Japan.

Professor Weidman illustrated the use of a sector-wide approach for strategic development of the education sector in order to attain donor funding to education by laying out priorities across the education sector in Mongolia. Dr. Weidman supplemented his research findings with his own experience with a project he was involved in during his time in Mongolia. He covered the overall context of key stakeholders in Mongolia’s education and explained his framework for sector-wide approaches to educational assistance with examples drawn from the 1999 Mongolia education sector strategy study. Drawing from his own experience in Mongolia, Dr. Weidman discussed in detail issues related to the process of implementing a sector-wide approach, from obstacles to incentives for Donor Coordination. He also highlighted the issue of conceptualizing education in global context with provision of a conceptual framework for globalization of teacher education.
