International Education (EDUF3027)


The unit emphasis is on the underpinning global education trends of the developed world. A number of themes are dealt with in this global context, in particular youth transition, Indigenous education issues in Australia, the USA and New Zealand, the emergence of international curriculum and assessment and a number of education system case studies. These case studies will include the education systems of France, Great Britain, Germany and Brazil. The unit will appeal to students who are likely to work in the increasingly global world of teaching and may be involved in latter years in working in organizations such as UNESCO, the OECD or the World Bank.
