Director's Welcome

Kia ora koutou - Greetings

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Centre for Global Studies in Education (CGSE), based in the Faculty of Education, at the University of Waikato.

The Centre adopts a multi-disciplinary approach involving staff from across the University to explore and research the new challenges that are emerging in our globalised, increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.  Global studies will help educators prepare students to navigate our complex, globalised world; to internationalise their curriculum and pedagogy; and help students to critically reflect on and understand what it means to be globally informed, aware and compassionate human beings - "citizens of the world".

The Centre encompasses world-leading scholarship, research, publications, post-graduate teaching and hosts conferences and seminars on a wide range of topics related to a broad range of global issues.

Explore our website to learn more about our activities and check out the post graduate papers offered in the Master of Education specialisation of Global Studies in Education as we create a collaborative international post-graduate network. Please visit the conferences and seminars pages to learn more about the events we have already had and the conferences and seminars we have planned for the future.

Take some time to get to know us, and visit often, as we will update the site and Facebook frequently.
We welcome your comments, suggestions, thoughts and enquiries - so email us at [hyperlink] Follow us on Facebook.

The Global Studies community looks forward to hearing from you.

With this brief introduction, I welcome you to the Centre for Global Studies in Education.
