About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This Unit explores the relationship between education and knowledge through reference to questions about the links between education policy practices and global knowledge production. The conceptual framework which provides the focus for this Unit explores the dynamic, cyclical relations between the following: conditions of possibility for linking education policy practices and global knowledge production; contexts of negotiation/distance that affect this relationship; the modes of reception and rejection of the impact of linking of the two, and the mechanisms of connection that make this possible. These core concepts provide a focus for exploring questions about the relationship between ‘education policy practices’ and ‘global knowledge production’ in students’ everyday work-life.
