This subject equips you with the knowledge and skills necessary to be a teacher and an employee of the future. You will explore transformations in education from the perspective of world megatrends. The science of world megatrends provides us a unique insight into the ways the world and its systems are developing. The study of megatrends demonstrates how education is changing and what skills we must develop to confront its dynamic challenges such as increasing student diversity and digital transformations. In the first part of the subject, you will focus on internationalisation of education in Australia and globally. The second part explores digital transformation in education and the ways educators can prepare better to maximise its gains. The urgency for educators is to develop knowledge and skills necessary in preparing learners for these challenges. The time is now because, following William Gibson’s quote: “The Future is already here - it’s just not very evenly distributed”.
