Offshore Australian Higher Education: A Case Study of Pedagogic Work in Indonesia

Singh, Parlo (2004) Offshore Australian Higher Education: A Case Study of Pedagogic Work in Indonesia. In Hickling-Hudson, A., Matthews, J., & Woods, A. (Eds.) Disrupting Preconceptions: Postcolonialism and Education. Post Pressed, Flaxton, pp. 211-233.


In this paper I examine pedagogic work of the education export industry through an analysis of interview accounts provided by Western women teachers working offshore in Indonesia. Specifically, I examine one component of pedagogic work, that is, the construction of classroom knowledge about cross-cultural issues. Specifically, my interest is in examining the ways in which historically constituted power relations between Western teacher and Indonesian student, and the current epoch of a global knowledge economy, impact on the selection and construction of cross-cultural classroom knowledge. I ask who inhabits the space of Australian offshore higher education in Jakarta, Indonesia; what is the content and form of pedagogic relations in these spaces, what is sayable and speakable to whom, and how, and consequently what types of pedagogic innovations are imaginable?
