This full day course provides primary and secondary school teachers with the reflective space to explore concepts, knowledge and approaches related to global learning, and how this relates to our practice as teachers. The ‘global dimension’ includes concepts, values, and practices relating to diversity, sustainable development, interdependence (the local-global links), human rights, conflict resolution, social justice and global citizenship.
The course enhances participant′s understanding of the approaches to learning which promote critical literacy such as Philosophy for Children and Open Spaces for Dialogue and Enquiry. It is also very practical, exploring a range of activities for enabling and measuring global learning.
The Global Learning Programme is a ground-breaking new government initiative to create a national network of schools, committed to helping students make positive contributions to a globalised world by helping teachers deliver effective teaching and learning about development and global issues at Key Stages 2 and 3.
