This learning event is right for you if you are an educator and want to explore a globally aware pedagogy.


In this post-pandemic era, we are very much in need of global minded children. With over 50 years of combined experience in international school settings, Reshaping Schools believe that there are significant initiatives that all schools can take to embed global mindedness in their school culture and in teaching and learning. This workshop explores issues around identity and culture, the continuum of big ideas that students should address through their primary and secondary school and the knowledge, skills and capabilities to be developed. The workshop looks at the imperatives for  a globally aware pedagogy, and the connections to state and national curriculum.

If the world is to become a sustainable place, the world will need more globally minded people.     


This learning event supports creating best practice toward meeting the following VRQA standard(s):

Curriculum and Student Learning – Student learning outcomes                                                                 

  • The minimum standards for schools offering a senior secondary course – Student learning outcomes

  • resources and examples of curricula which include global competence and cultural awareness
  • an understanding of how to embed global mindedness into current curriculum
  • ideas on how to build more opportunities through education, to make the world more sustainable through global understanding.
