  • The full-text version of this article is available through the EBSCOhost database in the Ashford University Library. Globalisation discussed as “a complex relation to its discourse.” In the Abstract, Papastephanous writes, “failure to grasp distinctions between globalisation and globalism leads to naïve and ethnocentric glorifications of the potentialities of globalization…. The antagonistic impulses cultivated by globalization and globalist discourse are singled out and targeted…. The final suggestion of the article concerns the vision of a more cosmopolitically sensitive education.” This article will assist you with your APA “Find the Errors” Task assignment this week.

  • In this article, the author explains what general education requirements are and some of the reasons why colleges include them in degree requirements. The author suggests that one of the biggest problems with general education courses is the fact that students do not think they are important. The author then supports the fact that general education courses increase a student’s critical thinking skills, communication skills, and problem-solving skills before they start taking more advanced courses in their field of study.
