Tuesday September 26th 2017 10.00 – 3.30 pm Monash Club, Clayton
Migration is not what it used to be. Advances in transport and communication technologies have transformed the nature of migrant experiences, enabling globally mobile people to remain in touch with each other across vast distances and national borders, transforming their sense of belonging, stretching their imagination and aspirations. It has also ‘transnationalized’ the nature of our classrooms and schools. Examine the pedagogic challenges and opportunities associated with the dynamic conditions and logics of transnational mobility with Professor Fazal Rizvi.
Fazal Rizvi is a Professor of Global Studies in Education at the University of Melbourne, as well as an Emeritus Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

A collection of his essays is published in: Encountering Education in the Global: Selected Writings of Fazal Rizvi (Routledge 2014).
