Study mode and course location
Off campus - Clayton
A web-based, coursework-only professional masters degree that will benefit persons working in formal educational settings, business and industry, activist organisations, government, non-governmental organisations, health care, community and other settings where various discourses about globalisation are changing the way lives are lived and learning and work are undertaken. This is a collaborative program involving University of British Columbia (Canada), Linkoping University (Sweden), University of the Western Cape (South Africa) and Monash University, Melbourne (Australia). Students will proceed through the 1.5 year equivalent, 72-credit program as a cohort.
After completing this program students will be able to: critically analyse dominant and alternative theories and discourses of `globalisation'; identify the various ways context shapes adult learning and related policy; intelligently discuss why and the ways in which learners resist or embrace `education'; analyse attempts to foster change through learning and plan effective learning interventions that help adults increase their influence over the direction and pace of local and global change.
