This unit develops students' understanding of the impact of technologisation and globalisation on learning and teaching in work and community settings. Drawing on specific accounts of work practice, it focuses on the ways in which identities and relationships are constructed and reconstructed in organisations and the role that education and training plays in this process.


Upon successful completion of this unit students should:

  • have an understanding of the concepts of 'development' and 'identity', as they arise in work contexts;
  • be able to identify and describe the ways in which these concepts are related to each other and to contemporary forces of globalisation and technologisation;
  • be able to explore the implications of these relationships for formal and informal learning and teaching in workplaces and communities; and
  • be able to use this knowledge when developing educational content in their area of expertise.
