Maintaining Global Citizenship Education in Schools: A Challenge for Australian Educators and Schools
Buchanan, John; Burridge, Nina; Andrew Chodkiewicz
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v43 n4 Article 4 p51-67 Apr 2018
Teaching students about global citizenship remains a critical challenge for schools and communities, especially in a developed country like Australia. With increasingly difficult national and international contexts and its marginal place in the school curriculum, there is an urgent need to help maintain support for global citizenship education. Recognising the challenges and limitations, key ways to raise its profile include considering available pedagogies, drawing on the existing Australian Global Education framework, taking up existing curriculum opportunities, accessing quality educational resources and relevant teacher education programs, and working in partnership with key Non-Government Organisations.
