The One World Centre is developing a pool of casual professional learning presenters to present occasional workshops to teaching staff in schools, pre-service teachers in universities and educators in early learning centres.
One World Centre Professional Learning Workshops
One World Centre workshops aim to equip educators with the tools to foster active global citizenship through their classroom work with children and young people. Workshops are interactive, relevant, and related to key aspects of the Australian Curriculum or Early Years Learning Framework. Participants are enabled to expand their own knowledge of global issues and to take away practical strategies and activities they can use in the classroom. Education for global citizenship builds the vital knowledge students need for a changing world – increasing knowledge of pressing global challenges, building the skills for active citizenship, and enabling students to be more culturally competent in an increasingly diverse society.
