The GLC’s Teachers leading learning in Global Citizenship Education action research program supports participants to develop their capacity to:
- Effectively plan for and implement a strategy to incorporate Global Citizenship Education (GCE) in their teaching context
- Take a leadership role in GCE and empower colleagues to be globally minded educators
- Generate evidence-based practice to inform future professional learning requirements for GCE.
Participants undertake a minimum 10-week action research cycle of ‘planning’, ‘acting and observing’ and ‘reflecting’. During this process the GLC will support participants to establish: a pedagogical focus, objectives, research method and evaluation tools. During implementation the GLC will support participants with online and face-to-face mentorship as required. Following the critical reflection stage the GLC will support participants to showcase new understandings with colleagues during a 45-minute presentation.
I have found many benefits in engaging in the Action Research Project – scaffolding for me, recording of reflections and my participation in a reflective Webinar. It gave me great insight into running a program involving the complex but dynamic interactions between parents, children and volunteer staff. (Charles, St Paul’s School, Bald Hills)
