Global Perspectives

Global Perspectives: A statement on global education for Australian schools was first published in 2002. Its purpose was to clarify the goals, rationale, emphases and processes of global education and to serve as a resource – a philosophical and practical reference point – for all Australian teachers and students. The statement was the result of extensive planning and consultation, and synthesised the theory and existing practice of global education. This new edition of Global Perspectives aims to make global education even more accessible to teachers and curriculum planners. It provides a revised framework for global education, recommendations about integrating global perspectives within and across learning areas, and advice for teachers and school leadership teams about how to implement the framework at a school level. Professional development advice is also provided for teachers, coordinators and school leaders.
