Webinar: Creating ImpACT Through Global Citizenship Education – Feb 24

Posted by Campus Compact on February 1, 2022

According to UNESCO, “Global Citizenship Education (GCE) aims to empower learners of all ages to assume active roles, both locally and globally, in building more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and secure societies.” GCE is a form of civic learning that aims to provide students with the ability to respond to global challenges and to contribute to a more inclusive and peaceful world. By integrating key components of global citizenship into curriculum across disciplines, students develop skills that prepare them for an increasingly interconnected world, and as a result, we create more fully engaged and compassionate communities.

In this webinar, participants will gain tools and resources to integrate GCE and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into curriculum to help learners of all ages develop core competencies such as collaboration, critical thinking, effective communication and empathy to be equipped to respond to global challenges. Participation as the action dimension of global citizenship will be the focus of the presentation, providing participants with strategies to incorporate project-based learning into curriculum by applying global citizenship and SDGs frameworks to help students develop global competencies, explore global issues in their local context and feel empowered to transfer ideas into action. Participants will acquire knowledge of how the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) can be used as a roadmap and innovative teaching method to deepen student learning experiences, empowering students to engage in collaborative changemaking.

Date and Time: Thursday, February 24, 2022, 3:00-4:00 PM
