X NIS International Research-to-Practice Conference, 25-26 October 2018: Keynote Speech

Becoming a Globally Competent Learner for a 21st Century World: Evidence and Challenges

Education systems around the globe are being challenged to develop globally competent learners in schools so as to help realise the Sustainable Development Goals set by the world community. In this keynote Susan considers the global competence framework being developed by the OECD, outlines the nature of the challenges for students, teachers and education systems, and reflects on what research evidence and agendas there might be to deliver on this. The Professor suggests that there are tensions in the approach, not so much because of the specific knowledges and skills that are identified, but because the tool itself – as an instrument of ordinality – acts in ways that are contrary to the overall goal. Susan Robertson concludes by suggesting that how we govern matters as much as what knowledges and skills we prioritise as educators.
