Reply To: Module 1 – Introduction to Development Education

Conor Beirne

The paper “The Role of Global Citizens in Today’s World” (Ehigie, 2021) highlights the importance of development education. As a primary school teacher, I recognise its value in fostering global citizenship. By integrating diverse perspectives, global issues, and cross-cultural understanding, development education equips students with the skills and values to navigate an interconnected world. I incorporate development education by creating an inclusive classroom environment that promotes critical thinking and empathy. To encourage colleagues, I collaborate on workshops and professional development to share strategies and resources. By fostering a shared vision and emphasizing interdisciplinary approaches, we inspire fellow educators to plan development education activities throughout our school. Together, we empower the next generation to become compassionate global citizens, capable of making positive contributions in our changing society.
