Educating for a smaller world

Ron Hoenig
South Australian Department of Education and Children’s Services (DECS)
A project to internationalise the South Australian curriculum is currently underway. It embraces curriculum change, new opportunities for students and staff, community engagement, commercial issues, quality assurance and interagency collaboration. A significant part of the internationalisation process is a focus on Asia. Internationalisation of the curriculum includes appreciation of Australia’s geographic situation, the value of language learning, and the need for Australian students to learn about other countries’ cultures and politics, in particular those of our largest trading partners.
