Global Citizenship Education: a passport to social cohesion

A free online course for Queensland teachers

More and more teachers across Queensland are discovering the benefits of introducing Global Citizenship Education (GCE) into their classrooms, and you can too by enrolling in our free online course.

Delivered in partnership with Griffith University and sponsored by the Queensland Government, this course will equip you with strategies, resources and real-life examples to help you develop globally aware students who are critically literate, socially connected and ethically responsible.

Designed for teachers working in early childhood centres, schools and TAFE, the course is delivered in six modules that are accessible any time over the six-week period, so you can complete them at your own pace and at a time that suits you.

At the end of each module, you’ll be invited to complete a short quiz to test your new knowledge, and you’ll also have an opportunity to share your thoughts about each topic on the discussion board.

The next course will be available from 30 April to 11 June 2018, and spaces are filling up fast. To secure your spot, register online now via Griffith University’s Professional Learning Hub. Registrations close 4pm, 1 April 2018.
