Competence development for teachers
For the successful implementation of global learning in schools, competent teaching staff are required, who can implement the new content in their daily work. Teachers require support, advice and training for this. For this reason, information sessions and training are a central component of “Global Fairness”.
Tool for teacher training
Under the lead of EPIZ, we are developing a six-month training course for teaching staff. “Blended Learning” (online training combined with seminars) enables a detailed examination of the topic, exchange in the group, reflection and feedback. To conclude the trainings, the participants will receive resources adapted to their needs. Training will then be tested in a pilot in Berlin.
Training for teaching staff
“Global Fairness“ offers training for teaching staff and multipliers on the topics globalisation and sustainable development. The content can be implemented in lessons and in extra-curricular work. Guests from countries in the global South will support us in the training.
The following topics are on offer:Berlin (Germany):
- Inclusion of the global dimension in school subjects: EPIZ
- Global Classroom: BGZ
- South-North school partnerships: BGZ
- Work with the interactive exhibition on migration at school: BGZ
- Carrying out a “Climate Breakfast“: KATE
