Pedagogic identities on offer in a case of online internationalised education
Doherty, Catherine A. (2006) Pedagogic identities on offer in a case of online internationalised education. In AARE 2005 International Education Research Conference, December 2005, UWS Parramatta.
An ethnographic analysis of the pedagogic interaction online in an internationalised MBA unit showed how expressions of cultural difference were produced both as a curricular asset, and as regulative troubles. The relational cultural identities thus produced are further analysed with reference to Bernstein’s (2000) typology of pedagogic identities, and the points of suture or articulation (Hall 1996) between student identities, student aspirations and the subjectivities offered through curricular and pedagogic design. The identities invoked through such mechanisms and within the semiotic means available, are shown to be discursively restricted to overly deferential and retrospective notions of the culturally determined Other, with limited expressions of the emerging ‘market’, hybrid or cosmopolitan identities which such sites could potentially and profitably facilitate. This analysis is used to reflect on the cultural politics of limiting imagination in the wider context of commodified education in globalised markets.
