Feedback form is now closed.
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the Centre for Global Education’s educational approach through hands-on learning experiences. Educators will explore integration of Global Connections, and the importance of global conversations in the classroom, school, and society. The approach used by the Centre for Global Education (CGE) is an inquiry-based and collaboratively-focused process for building background knowledge on significant global issues. Through online activities and expert-led video conference connections, CGE uses a knowledge-to-action approach to learning and student engagement to arrive at understandings of and solutions to local, national, and global issues. CGE’s suite of resources will be shared with participants, as they frame student learning experiences. Opportunities for reflection, debrief, and open exchange of ideas and practices will occur.
