Global Education Pedagogies ESM733

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



Teachers and students in the twenty-first century are part of a rapidly changing, globalised world where they are linked not only to local communities, but also to the wider global community.

In this unit, global education pedagogies that take account of this global context and are designed to prepare students to develop globally relevant perspectives and skills will be examined. The specific pedagogy and curriculum from the area of Global Education which have been developed to engage students with their futures as active and informed global citizens will also be examined. In addition, international education pedagogies (eg, International Baccalaureate) which have a global focus, will be reviewed.

Through this unit, participants will become familiar with a range of global education pedagogies and curriculum materials. They will also be given the opportunity to show how these global education pedagogical insights and materials might be applied to their own teaching and to the Australian Curriculum (or other relevant curricula).
