EQ923 Understanding Global Education and International Development

Module Leader: Emily Henderson
Core module MA Global Education and International Development

The focus of this module is on changing global patterns in the way that education systems are being regulated, and in different populations’ participation in education systems. The changes that education is experiencing as a conceptual space, as systems and institutions, and as individuals’ everyday experiences, demand a contemporary approach to the study of education for practice as well as purely academic purposes.
