TLHE Keynote Address 2 : Globalised Education An NUS Perspective Speaker: Professor Tan Eng Chye Deputy President (Academic Affairs) and Provost National University of Singapore, Singapore Synopsis Globalisation is irreversible, pervasive and unstoppable. At the economic level, it affects employment and inevitably impinges upon the primary and traditional goals of education. In a knowledge-based economy, human capital and the generation and application of new knowledge are key drivers. To develop human capital fully, it has become imperative for all educational institutions to expose their students to a more diversified cultural and social environment through efforts in internationalising education. Traditionally, universities have a two-pronged approach to internationalisation: boosting the international student population and sending more students abroad. NUS has embarked on providing globalised education for many years, and has been innovative in many respects. The term globalised education here refers to an educational framework which incorporates an enveloping, subterranean global learning component. In this talk, we will share our NUS experience and emphasise the salient features of focus the new global curriculum, enriched student experience and enhanced faculty engagement. About the Speaker Professor Tan Eng Chye is Deputy President (Academic Affairs) and Provost at the National University of Singapore (NUS). As Deputy President and Provost, he oversees and drives special strategic initiatives of critical importance for NUS ...

Globalised learning This is one of the ten trends identified by CORE as trends in education that we imagine will impact on the work of teachers and leaders in early childhood centres, schools, and tertiary institutions in NZ in the coming year. While our focus is on the bigger picture of education, there is a focus on trends associated with the use of ICTs in education, reflecting the fact that we are living in a world where nearly everything we do has a digital dimension.

Douglas Pratt-Antipodean Angst, Islam in New Zealand and Globalised Issues of Encounter.mp4 Islam first came to New Zealand in the form of Chinese gold miners in the 19th century, but it was to be many years before a distinctive Muslim community, with its own forms of organisation and purpose-built mosques, would emerge. Effectively invisible to New Zealand society for about a century, it is only as a result of immigration and refugee re-settlement in recent decades, coupled with the more recent ubiquitous exposure to Islam via the media, that the presence of Islam and Muslims has surfaced within the New Zealand landscape and societal consciousness to the point of provoking a measure of anxiety if not outright hostility. This talk will review the history of Islam and the place of Muslims in New Zealand and discuss the challenges and issues faced by Muslims as well as social responses and perceptions, including evidence of a rising anxiety about all things Islamic, that have been forged more by external global issues than local factors.

Social mobility in the globalised South Korea - Professor Hagen Koo. ANU, March 2010 One of the most important consequences of globalisation in the world today is increasing economic inequality within and between nations. Globalisation does not simply increase economic inequality: it also modifies the pattern of social stratification and the game of status competition. What happens, however, when social mobility system becomes globalised? Professor Hagen Koos talk examines the changing pattern of social mobility in South Korea as a consequence of globalisation. Koo will focus on the rise of a cosmopolitan strategy of social mobility, the core of which involves sending children overseas for early English education and foreign degrees as well as for other cosmopolitan cultural aptitudes. Professor Koo will argue that cosmopolitanism in South Korea, as in many other societies, does not simply represent a cultural orientation but a new strategy of class reproduction employed by affluent segments of the middle class in this age of globalisation. Hagen Koo is Professor of Sociology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, US and journal editor of Korean Studies. Born in Seoul Korea, he received his BA in Korea and PhD from Northwestern University. Professor Koo has published extensively on the political economy of East Asian development and the industrial transformation of South Korea. His books include the award-winning Korean Workers: The Culture and Politics of Class Formation and State and Society in Contemporary Korea. Currently, he is writing a book on the ...

TEDxUHasselt - Yeri Tiete and Pieter Colpaert - The future of commuting in a globalised world iRail started around September 2008 as the mobile website that still exists today (www.irail.be). Yeri Tiete ("Tuinslak") noticed there was no mobile alternative for the NMBS/SNCB site and decided to create it himself. The idea of iRail was to provide a simple interface to quickly look up train departure times in Belgium. In January 2011, the iRail NPO was established. iRail is now much more than just a mobile website. They are specifying an API for anyone to implement or use, and are further developing the iRail site and the accompanying BeTrains applications for various platforms. Some other projects, like BeLaws, found a place under the iRail NPO umbrella as well. The iRail members continue developing the mobile website and applications. Furthermore, they advocate for the benefits of open data, for example by organizing or attending events and workshops. In thespirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

NATO in a Globalised World NATO Deputy Secretary General Ambassador Claudio Bisogniero addresses the current and future role of NATO in a globalised world in this lecture at The Australian National University. NATO was formed in April 1949 in response to the rapidly emerging Soviet threat to the nations of Western Europe and North America. Its founding treaty declared that an attack against one of its member states would be considered an attack against them all. Sixty two years later, the threats facing NATO's members have changed considerably. Direct attack by an outside state seems unlikely and instead the alliance currently confronts a diverse array of challenges, ranging from terrorism and nuclear proliferation to piracy, cyber attacks, and the disruption of energy supplies. It maintains a training mission in Iraq, a peacekeeping force in Kosovo, and leads the complex international effort in Afghanistan. Some argue that the end of the Cold War left NATO without a role and it has spent the past decade trying, unsuccessfully, to find a new one. Others advocate that NATO is critical to the maintenance of global peace and security in the 21st century. Ambassador Claudio Bisogniero is a career diplomat who has represented Italy in Beijing and Washington, at the United Nations in New York, and at NATO in Brussels. In 2007 he was appointed as the NATO Deputy Secretary General.
