Week 6: How should education respond to the challenges of the future?

Introduction

Welcome to Week 6 of Looking globally: the future of education.

In this course you have been challenged to consider what education is for – that is, the purposes of education. The rationale for the next series of activities is to support you in thinking critically about the ideas introduced in Weeks 1–5 and how they could contribute to your vision for an education system fit for the future.
