Campus Compact Webinar: 'Creating ImpACT through Global Citizenship Education' - February 24
Please join the Civic and Community Engagement Office for the webinar "Creating ImpACT through Global Citizenship Education," featuring speakers Anna Durfey, Mary Ellen Lynch, and SenMuthiya Mani from Roger Williams University, on Thursday, February 24, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. This event is presented by Campus Compact as part of its National Webinar Series and is free to members of the Buffalo State College community.
According to UNESCO, "Global citizenship education (GCE) aims to empower learners of all ages to assume active roles, both locally and globally, in building more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive, and secure societies.” GCE is a form of civic learning that aims to provide students with the ability to respond to global challenges and to contribute to a more inclusive and peaceful world. By integrating key components of global citizenship into curriculum across disciplines, students develop skills that prepare them for an increasingly interconnected world, and as a result, create more fully engaged and compassionate communities. In this webinar, participants will gain tools and resources to integrate GCE and sustainable development goals (SDGs) into the curriculum to help learners of all ages develop core competencies such as collaboration, critical thinking, effective communication, and empathy to be equipped to respond to global challenges. Participation as the action dimension of global citizenship will be the focus of the presentation, providing participants with strategies to incorporate project-based learning into curriculum by applying global citizenship and SDGs frameworks to help students develop global competencies, explore global issues in their local context, and feel empowered to transfer ideas into action. Participants will acquire knowledge of how the SDGs can be used as a roadmap and innovative teaching method to deepen student learning experiences, empowering students to engage in collaborative change-making.
