Item description for Towards Globo Sapiens by Patricia Kelly...

Global and local studies show that the present growth-based approach to development is unsustainable. If we are serious about surviving the 21st century we will need graduates who are not simply 'globally portable' or even 'globally competent', but also wise global citizens, Globo sapiens. This book contributes to what educators need to know, do and be in order to support transformative learning. The book is based on work with large, socially and culturally diverse, first-year engineering students at an Australian university of technology. It shows that reflective journals, with appropriate planning and support, can be one pillar of a transformative pedagogy which can encourage significant and even transformative attitude change in relation to gender, culture and the environment. It also offers evidence of improved communication skills and other tangible changes to counter common criticisms that such work is "airy-fairy" and irrelevant. The author combines communication theory with critical futures thinking to provide layered understandings of how transformative learning affected students' thinking, learning and behaviour. So the book is both a case-study and a detailed response to the personal and professional challenges that educators all over the world will face as they try to guide students in sustainable directions. It will be useful to teachers in higher education, especially those interested in internationalisation of the curriculum, transformative learning and values change for sustainable futures.

Reviews - What do customers think about Towards Globo Sapiens?

Reflexive pedagogy for global transformations  Oct 9, 2008
I recommend this book because it provides a stellar example of an approach to teaching and to pedagogical thinking that aims for the reflexivity and inner transformations that we know are necessary if we are to transform our external structures in ways life-saving to people, planet, and just purpose.Brenda Dervin, PhD.
