Grappling with Internationalisation of the Curriculum at the Secondary School Level: Issues and Tensions for Educators
Tudball, Libby
Australian Journal of Education, v49 n1 p10-27 Apr 2005
Increasing global flows of students, information and ideas, the realities of globalisation, and an increasingly interdependent world have meant that many educators at the secondary school level are currently grappling with the issue of how to internationalise the curriculum and increase inter-cultural understanding among students. In addition, complex and troubling issues in the world have added urgency to the need for consideration of what knowledge, skills, and pedagogies schools should focus on in the curriculum into the future. This article discusses views in the literature and research on how educators are grappling with the issues and tensions of internationalisation in Australian secondary schools. (Contains 2 tables.)
