Unit rationale, description and aim

Students will explore the inter-relationships between the emergence of globalisation, social change and educational outcomes. The contrasting discourse between internationalisation and globalisation will be examined and major perspectives of globalisation will be analysed. A major feature of the unit will be the impact of modernity and globalisation on the nation state, and the consequences for education and work globally. Particular attention will be given to the rise of global education policies, reflecting accountability, excellence and quality, especially in current educational reforms reflecting privatisation, marketing and academic elitism.
