Graduate students are welcome to register for the following elective courses in Global & International Education (EDGI) within the School of Education. Graduate students from all majors are invited to register. The courses are online but open to students in online and face-to-face programs.
EDGI 552: Gender, Education, and International Organizations
This course focuses on international organizations, foreign assistance, and their influence on educational policy and practice. We focus our analysis on organizations working at the intersection of gender equality and inclusive education, and particularly the role they play in global policy dialogues to develop a critical perspective of their work. Students examine how various multilateral, bilateral, financial, and civil society organizations work to shape policy, program planning, financing, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation of gender equality and education goals that are part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Using a critical perspective, students discover how gender and education activists work to shape their institutions and the development agenda locally and globally.

EDGI 604: Quantitative Literacy: Interpreting and reporting data for educational policy and research
The course will focus on both the art and science of quantitative methods by identifying how to draw careful insights from quantitative analyses. Students will read & discuss existing educational studies as well as review the results from quantitative analysis with a focus on 1) understanding the analytic approach, 2) interpreting the quantitative results, 3) best practices for visually displaying findings in figures and tables, and 4) using quantitative data to tell a compelling narrative. The course addresses the types of questions that can be addressed through quantitative methods, the importance of samples & describing a sample; summary data, patterns, and trends; the comparison of groups; the results from multiple regression analysis, experimental, and quasi-experimental research.
