Challenges in Global Learning

Dealing with Education Issues from an International Perspective

Editor(s): Paul Black, Peter Kell, Ania Lian
Contributors: Nick Hancock, Sven Silburm, Yoshi Budd, Therese Kersten, Tania Tamaotai, Sue Smith, Peter Kell, Brian Mooney,

Book Description

This volume offers a wide range of approaches for framing and addressing issues which currently shape global education. The discussions here are constructed around four research themes which reflect current strategic research priorities in Australian education. Together, they form a more rounded framework for approaching and evaluating educational changes and developments.

The collection is made up of collaborative research that emerged between researchers and Master’s coursework students in the Department of Education at Charles Darwin University, Australia.

The original approach this collaboration of research adopted was developed in response to the challenges currently being experienced by higher education institutions both in Australia and around the world, which are now redesigning research and coursework programmes to address the quality of the services that they provide. This book will appeal to educators, researchers and postgraduate students.
