Big picture thinking: how to educate the whole person for an interconnected world

Global competence is not an automatic by-product of academic learning, it is something that needs to be nurtured. But how can this be done effectively? How do we design curricula, instruction, assessments, and learning environments that develop students’ global competence?

This publication offers research-informed and actionable pedagogical principles that policymakers, leaders, and educators can use to support equitable and effective global and intercultural competence education. It includes case studies to illustrate these guiding principles in real-life contexts like classrooms, museums, learning centres, cultural exchange programmes, and digital platforms.
