This unit deals with the proposition that all teachers are working within diverse and increasingly internationalised and globalised contexts worldwide. It begins with a theoretical and practical discussion of the implications of internationalisation and globalisation on education and pedagogy and curriculum. It looks at the impact these changes have had on crucial notions, particularly language culture, identity and difference and the implications of this for teaching and learning. Finally, the unit investigates the ways that we as educators might work within the different contexts in which we are concerned to provide viable and far thinking curricula for students in internationalising educational contexts in Australia and overseas.
