Syllabus

This unit will overview and critically evaluate theories and discourses of globalisation. It will draw upon these theories to analyse how globalisation's interdependent economic, political, cultural and technological dimensions reconfigure education. Major global educational trends will be identified and reviewed, including: intercultural education; education for sustainability; educational leadership and policy; media and education; and education and digital technologies. The unit will provide the opportunity for students to apply some of these global perspectives and considerations to their own educational contexts and to reflect upon their social, political and ethical implications.
In the delivery of this unit opportunities will include on-campus and off-campus options.
