How do you assess the impact and know whether students have indeed developed the traits of a global citizen?

Many of the schools we support along their school improvement journeys ask the questions: how do we assess the impact of global citizenship and intercultural learning? How do we know whether students have indeed developed the traits of a global citizen?

This workshop is for CIS member schools that already have a definition of global citizenship and intercultural learning. These schools are ready to assess implementation and its impact on student learning and well-being and to consider questions related to inclusion through diversity, equity and anti-racism (I-DEA).

You can expect to:
  • gain guidance on how to embed global citizenship and intercultural learning in a contextually appropriate, intentional, and systematic way, and how to determine the impact of the activities and learning opportunities offered
  • access sample assessments to use as guidance as you look to assess the impact of the implementation of global citizenship and intercultural learning in your own unique school and context
  • learn from research by workshop facilitator Dr Eeqbal Hassim, Associate Professor University of Melbourne's Graduate School of Education, based on data from CIS member schools to better understand the journey of developing global citizenship and intercultural learning
  • explore ways to promote inclusion through diversity, equity, and anti-racism (I-DEA) in the curricular and co-curricular programmes and in the wider school community
