Global Citizenship Education

Global Citizenship Education (GCE) is gaining momentum worldwide, as evidenced by initiatives like PISA’s new global competence tests and the inclusion of GCE in Target 4.7 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal on Education. Across the state, Queensland educators are introducing GCE into their classrooms, actively engaging students from kindergarten to year 12, with outstanding results.

If you’re a teacher, you probably already know that a revised Australian Curriculum (9.0) could land on our doorsteps in early 2022. Perhaps like us, you are wondering how the General Capabilities like Intercultural Understanding will fair? Especially given the public commentary during the review phase with claims that proposals for change would 'dumb down' the smart country or promote a 'radical 21stcentury learning agenda' (Dr Fiona Mueller of the Centre for Independent Studies and others).At the GLC we see in our work educators successfully developing in their students' both disciplinary knowledge (e.g history) and skills which promote intercultural understanding.
