Educators can play a unique role in enabling their students to participate on the global stage - whether in work or life. Global Citizenship Education (GCE) encourages students to think beyond their immediate community, towards the challenges and opportunities of their globally connected generation. In this webinar, Matthew will take you through the concept of GCE - where it comes from, what it is, why it matters, and how it can be practically implemented in the classroom. He will cover three broad themes in current GCE thinking and practice: global orientation, global skills and global action.
This talk will be of particular interest to teachers working in international contexts, or wishing to incorporate cross-curricular skills into their teaching of mainstream subjects.
