This unit seeks to further understanding of developments in international education inclusive of the broader social, cultural and educational contexts leading to the development of new institutional formations in global education. Students will explore specific sectors in education inclusive of schools, post-secondary, higher education and international education such as IB. The unit will expect students to critically explore concepts such as globalization, transnationalism and mobility that shape the development of education in international contexts. It also seeks to familiarise students with the various issues that influence international education and have impact on shaping and transforming the development of professional standards, assessment, accreditation, certification, etc. These issues will be placed within the context of various explanations of the processes of cosmopolitanism, globalisation and the emergence of global capital, global society, global citizenship, and international schooling.
