Issues in Global Education ESM734


Due to the circumstances around COVID-19, you will begin your semester 2 studies online in 2020. However, when Government guidelines change, on-campus studies will be reintroduced.



The focus of the unit is on a detailed examination of key issues in Global Education. These issues will be selected from the five Global Education learning emphases: interdependence and globalisation, identity and cultural diversity, social justice and human rights, peace building and conflict resolution, and sustainable futures. Selected issues may also be related to major Global Education themes (eg global citizenship, poverty reduction) and framework dimensions of values and attitudes, knowledge and understanding, skills and processing, and action and participation.

Students will have the opportunity to examine issues in detail, conduct an analysis of the related literature, as well as consider the applications to their own professional practice.
