Knowledge cultures and higher education: achieving balance in the context of globalisation. Achieving a balance between new and existing knowledge cultures in education
This paper discusses the challenges faced by faculties of education and other related social sciences, with reference to the profound changes in the nature of knowledge cultures, especially in the context of internationalism and globalisation. It focuses mainly on university education in South East Asia.
The paper is structured in three themes: the first examines the changing nature of knowledge cultures and how far higher education should reflect uniformity and diversity; the second theme tackles the challenge of achieving an Integrative Education, which attempts to balance new knowledge cultures with more traditional knowledge cultures including local and indigenous forms of knowledge; and the third theme will examine the relationship between integration and balance in the context of Integrative Education, and the role that research and professional development should play in the process.
