Drawing on over 40 years teaching and researching in national schools, international schools and Universities, Bagnall shows how complex the global classroom has become. Multiples identities and global citizenship are key concepts to think and analyse societies and schools. This presentation talks about the need for inclusive teaching especially for minority groups. It draws upon experiences of two Pacific nation’s with different histories and cultural traditions: the Maori in NZ and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders’ in Australia.


Nigel Bagnall is Associate Professor of Comparative and International Education at the University of Sydney (Australia). Nigel Bagnall's most recent research project is on youth and their hopes and aspirations for the future. The results of the initial phase of the study involving Brazilian youth have been accepted for publication in a Brazilian Portuguese Journal. French, Australian and American youth also feature in this new area of research. The simple premise underpinning the study is that the period of transition from youth to adulthood is being prolonged as it becomes more difficult for them to make the transition to economic independence, job security and possibly an on-going relationship. The study focuses on youth in the 18-30 year age range.
