The SUSEES MOOC is an Online Summer School in Sociologies of Education open to scholars and students from all across Europe who intend to consolidate their expertise in studying education policies, practices and outcomes from a EU angle, assuming the European dimension as the privileged point of observation. SUSEES stems from a synergy between the European Educational Reserach Association Network 28 ‘Sociologies of Education’ and a well established group of educational researchers that focus their teaching and research agenda on Europeanisation and the challenges for education in contemporary societies. The faculty of SUSEES is composed by renowned scholars from all across Europe. In the 2016 MOOC lectures will be given by Stephen J. Ball, Sotiria Grek, Paolo Landri, Romuald Normand, Terri Seddon, Roberto Serpieri and Pat Thomson.
