Course Description

Global Education is a “creative approach of bringing about change in our society” (the Global Learning and Education Network, GLEN). It is a multidisciplinary approach to learning that conceives education from a wide perspective, and that presupposes the understanding that reality is made of closely interconnected complex systems. It is based on universal values of tolerance, solidarity, equality, justice and non-violence, and aims at fundamental goals such as the spread of critical thinking, media literacy, and active citizenship.

Through this course, you will gain a practical understanding of the basic principles of Global Education, and will become able to include it in any curriculum of study. You will be able to design educational activities based on its pillars, to raise awareness about global challenges (such as the root causes of poverty, the uneven distribution of resources, the nature of conflicts, the manipulation of information, and environmental degradation); to inspire critical thinking and the critical use of media; and to motivate students to become active, responsible global citizens.

The course is learner-centered, participatory and experience-based. Its part on media literacy will include an analysis of different media sources and advertisements from around the world — i.e., deconstructing their message into basic components and understanding the agendas and the values that inspire them. Participants will work in class to build positive counter-narratives to effectively contrast these messages.

Europass is a very good way to meet other teachers, share professional experiences and personal feelings. I enjoyed this journey which was too short! I've learned in only 5 days what I could have learnt in a couple of months.
