With different pedagogic practices come different ways of examining them and fresh understandings of their implications and assumptions. It is the examination of these changes and developments that is the subject of this book.

The authors examine a number of questions posed by the rapid march of globalisation, incuding:

  • What is the role of the teacher, and how do we teach in the context of globalisation?
  • What curriculum is appropriate when people and ideas become more mobile?
  • How do the technologies of the internet and mobile phone impact upon what is learnt and by whom?

The second edition of this important book has been fully updated and extended to take account of developments in technology, pedagogy and practice, in particular the growth of distance and e-learning.

Richard Edwards is Professor of Education at the Institute of Education, University of Stirling, UK. Robin Usher is Professor of Research Education at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia.

Editorial Reviews

'They bring together their earlier contributions to the literature in a comprehensive analysis of globalization and pedagogy ... an excellent and very timely book ... This excellent text should be read and read again by all those who intend to make a serious contribution to new understandings of the learning society as unknown territory.' - Barry Hake 'Edwards and Usher are to be congratulated for having produced an account which demands very close reading ... A provocative and important analysis of a vital topic to which many will find themselves drawn on repeated occasions.' - The Curriculum Journal
