CIED 2200 Globalization and Education


Globalization and Education: Perspectives on Teaching and Learning examines teaching and learning practices at play in a dynamic global context. The course aims to develop a foundation for global understanding of national education systems from a comparative point of view and places teaching and learning in social, economic, cultural, religious, and political contexts. The course of study provides students foundational knowledge in relation to global, transnational and national schooling policies and practices that, once implemented, become local instruments of national education policy. Students will identify and explore critical global education issues and national policies such as privatization, corporatization, and public investment that impact local school traditions and often result in cultural and political conflict. Students will explore in depth global education reform and global understanding which are essential foundations for teaching and learning in the 21st century. The course content will be based upon an examination of national systems of education from UNESCO Education for All findings, member countries and partners in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the reported outcomes from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).
