Tittel

Globalisation, universal knowledge, distance learning and post-colonial social work education : the need for cultural and linguistic diversity

Sammendrag

Globalisation implies that we perceive that the space between separate cultural and social experience contracts, that particular cultures and understandings of the world gain universal power and influence and that Western culture and knowledge overwhelms alternative local cultures and knowledges, maintaining colonial domination through economic power. Fragmentation of relationships and traditional knowledge bases in a post-modern world can seem to make universal knowledge bases more powerful. This paper argues that knowledges about social work can only be understood locally, within the social contexts and cultures of the worker, service user and agency. The reason is that, in practice and in social work education, understanding emerges from local experience and how it interprets universal knowledge. This paper draws on a number of case studies particularly focusing on distance learning approaches in different countries to show how the local adaptation of universal, globalised knowledge needs to take place to empower students and social work education to act anti-oppressively.
