Resource description

This paper is premised on the assumption that internationalization tends to destabilize conventional frameworks of curriculum design and implementation at local, national, and international levels. An organic approach is recommended involving the creation of new learning spaces in which the politics of difference in relation to histories of knowledge and power can be explored, in which the dominant values and other competing values can be interrogated and in which new patterns of identity formation, meaning and representation can be negotiated. The idea of international curriculum in relation to the politics of difference challenges us to rethink the design, planning and delivery of higher education in new ways. It implies the blurring of form and content. It suggests that current understandings of curriculum as simply a process of study of other cultures are insufficient in the international context.
