This is a limited-enrollment, competitive-entry international seminar.  It is an academic course that connects students, faculty, and professionals in England and Canada; it does not provide an observational or service-learning experience. 

We will be reading, discussing, writing, and hearing from practioners.

The travel component of the seminar enhances our opportunity to consider institutional differences and similarities in matters relating to childhood and youth.  For 2016, the emphasis will be on primary education and early childhood.  Students will write a journal that provides analysis of the readings, discussions, and presentations.

Our days in England will be organized and led by faculty at Winchester University.  While at Kings, our typical day will include a visit to a local school or program for children in the mornings and a discussion session in the afternoon.  For details see the course schedule.


See the links on the course schedule.


Discussion, Preparation, Engagment:  50%

Journal Analysis: 50%


This is a unique exchange opportunity that is not easily amenable to abscence.  If there is an emergency, contact the instructor immediately.


King’s is committed to Academic Integrity. Scholastic offences are taken seriously and students are directed to read the appropriate policy, specifically, the definition of what constitutes a Scholastic Offence, at the following Web site: http://www.uwo.ca/univsec/handbook/appeals/scholoff.pdf.

PLAGIARISM AND CHEATING ARE SERIOUS SCHOLASTIC OFFENCES. All required papers may be subject to submission for textual similarity review to the commercial plagiarism detection software under license to the University for the detection of plagiarism. All papers submitted for such checking will be included as source documents in the reference database for the purpose of detecting plagiarism of papers subsequently submitted to the system. Use of the service is subject to the licensing agreement, currently between The University of Western Ontario and Turnitin.com (http://www.turnitin.com).

Computer-marked multiple-choice tests and/or exams may be subject to submission for similarity review by software that will check for unusual coincidences in answer patterns that may indicate cheating.
