This Adult Learning and Global Change programme from Linköping University enhances students’ ability to work in a globalising world and to challenge the traditional perspectives on globalisation. Our programme is an equal collaboration with universities in Canada and South Africa.
All course activities will be done within a digital learning platform, where you will learn together with students from the partner universities in a global class, making the programme truly international. The courses contain topics such as locating oneself in global learning, adult learning: contexts and perspectives, global/local learning, and understanding research.
The programme won the 2005 Curriculum Innovation Award, awarded by the Commission of Professors of Adult Education of the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education and also The e-Learning Excellence Award(2015) at the 14th European Conference on E learning, held at Hertfordshire University, UK.
Following the final examination, you will have theoretical knowledge of globalisation and its impacts in different locations. This knowledge that is needed when you work in different formal and informal adult learning organizations.
Graduates of the programme will be able to: learn and teach globally, use global connective technologies, understand knowledge-based societies and their implications for learning, understand globalisation discourses, develop cultural sensibilities and sensitivities and develop an equality perspective for learning and re-framing their own professional practices.
