Worlds of Learning: Globalisation and Multicultural Education
Common Ground, 2002 - Global method of teaching - 185 pages
For the past decade or more, the linguistic, ethnic and indigenous diversity of the Australian student population has been enriched by the increasing presence of students from around the world, and especially from Asia. The changing demographic features of this student population have increased our consciousness of the differential power relations associated with cultural, ethnic, religious and linguistic differences, and the need for new skills for negotiating these changing global/local relations. These changes require that productive transnational education must also mean engaging constructively with different cultural knowledges; increasing the active participation of students from different linguistic backgrounds; and building a cosmopolitan, transnational identity among all students and teachers. The substantial challenges of creating productive transnational education is compounded by the changing political economy of education; the changes required in teacher identities in response to student diversity, and the changes in the knowledge base of education, especially the languages in which it is made accessible. These three dimensions to the transformation of education are explored across the various chapters in this collection. [Back cover].
