(extra info for the module from the class) Module Four: Special
Study
We now turn to several readings that you will tackle with minimal guidance. They have been
selected to introduce you to some important themes, but it is important to realise they are
only a selection.
In Module Four, you will be able to select a topic of special interest to you – these remaining
readings will set the scene for some ‘macro’ understandings of globalisation and its impact.
What remains for you to do is to ponder the local impact of globalisation, especially its effect
on education and training provision in organisations and contexts of particular interest to you.
These readings are designed to introduce you to major themes to help organise your thinking
and help you expand your research on a particular theme.
