Globalisation: Understanding The Global Citizen


Weber (2014) describes a negative aspect of globalisation as being the focus on market values and not human values. Adults engage in learning to meet a specific work or personal goal, for social interaction and seek knowledge. To participate in adult education is dependent on public and social policy within formal academia and government policy.  The effect of nationality, economic, political, cultural and ecological factors impact on education and training.

This post compliments Global Adult Education Policy, Agendas and Ideologies in providing resources on gaining an understanding on globalisation. This is all very relevant, especially in the current global political climate. For the educator to understand education on a micro and macro level and how this links in with business, politics and globalisation.
