INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION POLICY AND MANAGEMENT
Credit points: 30
In this subject students develop understandings of international educational policy by exploring the social, political and economic contexts that influence international educational policy and policy making. Students consider theories of globalization, the changing role of the state, the restructuring of education, and current development models in order to compare approaches to educational policy making across states and jurisdictions. The emphasis on change in education and training creates complex relations between the states, civil and global worlds; students explore the way education and training are related, tied and influenced by the international policy. The complexity of international educational policy and management is examined through all phases of the policy cycle, including problem identification, policy development, policy analysis, political decision making, policy implementation, and policy evaluation.
