Learning and Teaching in Global Communities (7018EDN)

This course focuses on current perspectives on globalisation as it investigates the links between globalisation and education. Students will gain advanced knowledge and understanding of the economic political and cultural dimensions of globalisation and of the major interpretive approaches to globalisation. They will analyse and synthesise the impact of globalisation on world trends in education, including on cross-cultural and trans-national trends in education provision and on the emerging global and regional structures in education. Particular emphasis will be placed on understandings of knowledge as a global construct and the subsequent positioning of students and educational professionals as knowledge workers in learning communities in a globalising world. In response to understandings of global learning communities, students will have the opportunity to study an approved course in another (global) university. Interested students should consult the program convenor.
