This unit seeks to further the 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 the International Baccalaureate (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.
