Education in a Changing World

Dr. Ross Boyd, Open2Study (Industry)

Explore education as a social institution that’s shaped by and part of shaping a constantly changing world.

In this course you will explore Education as a social institution charged with communicating the knowledge, skills and cultural values that society considers most important. We will look at how the aims of Education have changed over time in response to changing and competing views of what is considered a ‘good society’ and ‘good person’, as well as changes that come from new understandings of a constantly changing world. We will also look at the way Education continues to change in the context of new communication technologies, globalization and climate change.
