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, globalisation in education refers to the increasing mobility of students and teachers across the world, and the need for educators to be more inclusive.

Understanding globalisation in education 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 global impact changes.

Multicultural and International education

International global 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 are essential for the curriculum.

Some big benefits of globalisation in education 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.
