Local/Global Learning:  A ‘Third Wave’ approach to ‘Global perspectives’ in Australian higher education aims to make the global an integrated ‘everyday’ experience for students. This project will investigate students’ dispositions towards global perspectives and ascertain how best to utilise students’ current service learning experiences in domestic and international settings to augment these dispositions.  It will draw upon cultural theory, service learning and best practice to theorise and develop curriculum and pedagogical frameworks that can inform the development of learning and teaching strategies which centralise global perspectives, bringing them from the periphery to the core for Australian graduates.
