Globalised Processes And Their Influences On University Learning And Teaching In Advanced Knowledge Economies In The Asia-Pacific Region, Chi-Hung Ng, Michiko Nakano, Robert Fox

Robert Fox

This chapter situates learning and teaching in various globalised processes. We argue that major globalised processes have resulted in the development of a new learning and teaching context in the Asia-Pacific region. Within this new context, this chapter discusses issues and challenges in four important areas: new student groups, technological change, using English as a mode of communication, and finally, assessment and quality assurance practices. We have integrated a brief introduction to the chapters in this book in the discussion of these four focal areas in the new context of learning and teaching.
