Reply To: Module 1 – Introduction to Development Education

Niamh Hanlon

Like others on this forum, I teach in a large urban school where the student body has become increasingly diverse over the last several years. The idea of CPD in the area of developmental education is largely down to the arrival of a number of students with refugee status over the last 12 months and the ongoing conflicts which become more relevant to the students when their classmate has first hand experience. The language around how we can discuss these types of topics is incredibly important.

The article ‘The Role of Global Citizens in Today’s World’ was informative in that it highlighted the importance of developmental education as a means of developing global citizenship. With this article in mind, I look forward to engaging with resources which will help students to recognise their place in the world and how their small changes in actions and mindset can have a knock on effect nationally/ globally.
