Education in the Asia-Pacific Region ESM732

This unit is being phased out, no new enrolments are being taken.


In this unit students will focus on education in the Asia-Pacific region through the lens of Global Education. This perspective will include a focus on current issues pertinent to the region, particularly those identified in the UN Millennium Development Goals. While the intention of the unit is to provide an opportunity to develop both general and specific knowledge and understandings related to the region, there will also be an opportunity to explore these in relation to school curricula, including the National Curriculum.

Following a general overview of key aspects and issues, students will either focus on several educationally related issues in one particular country in the Asia-Pacific region, or select a particular issue and examine this issue cross-nationally in the region. Students will also have the opportunity to develop applications to their own teaching area as applicable.
