At Maastricht University, a group of teachers and students is probing how we can boost Global Citizenship (GC) education and social engagement. We hope to develop a holistic approach to GC education that targets students, teachers, the institution, and external stakeholders. We are now focusing on:
- Reflection on the nature of global citizenship, and internal communication of what it is and why it is desirable;
- Introduction of novel ways of teaching and assessing (aspects of) global citizenship in curricula, and training teachers to teach and model global citizenship themselves;
- Supporting service and community-based learning and recognizing activities that help students to develop GC competencies.
