Education in the Context of Globalisation (and How it Impacts Teachers)

The term “globalisation” encompasses a number of things, including economics, culture, politics, technology and communication. In education, it refers to increasing mobility of students and teachers across the world, and the need for educators to be more inclusive.

Understanding education in the context of globalisation requires a broader perspective, one that looks at local, national and global contextual influences in a unified way. Teachers need to widen their cross-cultural skill set, and school leaders must update educational policies in order to respond to these changes.

Multicultural and International education

International education is a catalyst for leading change around the world, and there’s a growing demand for teachers and educators who have the right skills in multiculturalism.

One of the key challenges is supporting international teaching in higher education to prepare the next generation for a rapidly shrinking world. Certain subject areas such as engineering, business or architecture are especially affected as global mobility increases. In order to maintain international relations and help future professionals establish important business partnerships, multicultural studies is essential for the curriculum.

Some big benefits of globalisation include greater awareness of other cultures, better transnational collaboration, reduced discrimination and racism, the spread of technology and innovation, and higher standards of living across the globe.

Leadership from a global perspective

Exposing students to different cultures, ethnic groups, religions and languages can help to enrich society and broaden young minds. Therefore, it’s important for educational leaders to have the tools in place to support this vital area of growth.

Our master’s in Global Educational Leadership course helps existing education professionals understand leadership and management from an international point of view. You will also get essential training in mentoring strategies and creative problem-solving that can be applied directly to the workplace.
