Global Citizenship and International Development Education - GLOBE507 (2020)

This paper aims to provide a critical history of international development and education by reference to modernisation, development theory, post-developmentalism and sustainability. It will focus on recent theories of economic development within the context of globalisation that highlight the role of education such as human capital theory, and it will examine the ideology of neoliberalism in relation to education policy. It will also introduce students to the recent paradigms of the knowledge, creative and innovation economies, and examine alternative development possibilities of open education, open science and open development.
