About this Unit
This unit responds to the question of what it might mean to educate "world teachers" for a cosmopolitan age where classrooms and schools are being shaped by the increasing mobility of ideas, people, technology, media and finance. For some time, multicultural education, as policy and practice, has dominated schooling in Australia. While this was an important period in Australia, times have changed. The globalisation of teaching is one dimension of this change as supranational bodies more and more shape what teachers do. Set against these global agendas are the mobilities that teachers must respond to at the local level. This unit examines cosmopolitan social and education theory as a means to understand these dynamics, framing teachers as agents of change.
