GLOBAL CURRICULUM READING GROUP
Reflective Transformative Totally Inclusive
8 sessions designed for busy teachers to discover ‘what we learn’, ‘why we learn it’ and ‘how we learn it’
The Global Curriculum Reading Group offers participants the opportunity to explore the origins of knowledge, global teaching pedagogies and how to apply this in practice.
WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
Each session is structured around a specific theme and a series of
thought-provoking questions. Prior to each session, a selection of texts, journal articles, exclusive interviews and music will be uploaded to create discussion points and open engagement pathways.
We meet online as a group for 1-hour in a seminar-style format. Our
aim is to explore ways in which we can positively develop an aspect of our teaching commensurate with the ideas and themes we examine.
The GCRG complements the Global Curriculum Pathway.
