The field of education has experienced extraordinary technological, societal, and institutional change in recent years, making it one of the most fascinating yet complex fields of study in social science. Education is a multidisciplinary and international field drawing on a wide range of social sciences and humanities disciplines, and this new edition of the International encyclopedia of education aims to encapsulate research and comprehensively match this diversity. The encyclopedia was developed by an international expert panel of editors and authors and incorporates more than 1,000 chapters covering such topics as demography and social change; learning and cognition; education of professionals; economics; globalisation; philosophy of education; education research methodology; primary and secondary education; educational assessment; social and emotional aspects of learning; vocational education and training (VET); qualitative research; education measurement; technology and learning; higher education (HE); leadership and management; educational evaluation; education of children with special needs; curriculum development; national systems of education; adult education; statistics; early childhood education and care (ECEC) theory; and teacher education. It will be of interest to educators and researchers in education of all backgrounds.
