This course takes a comparative view of globalization’s impact on individuals and groups across nations by considering the goals of adult education worldwide, as well as the varying organizations acting as delivery systems. We will explore issues of access and opportunity, societal versus individual change, and the meaning of international development. We will compare adult education in various regions and countries, particularly in response to globalization and the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organizations’ agendas for adult and lifelong learning.
