Teaching and Learning about Asia in Australia


In 2019, a new major “Global Asia” will be commencing in the Bachelor of Arts at Monash University. This seminar will take this opportunity to discuss what and how we teach and learn about “Asia” in a globalised world. After informal talk over luncheon, the seminar will start with the introduction of the “Global Asia” major, followed by comments on the curriculum and wider issues regarding the study of Asia.

Key issues to be discussed will include:a)responding to student interests; b) content vs method vs skills; c) collaboration with Malaysian campus; d) postgraduate study of “Asia”; e) university and “Asia literacy/capability” cultivation in Australian schools and society.
