Welcome to the course. You are so right to highlight the need to highlight the concept of ‘global citizenship’. Getting children to think beyond their own experience of the here and now is really important in drawing attention to our role within a global community. You mention the benefits of ‘integrating’ these themes and perspectives into our curriculum. Development education lends itself to cr0ss-curricualr learning and there is huge scope to build and develop integrated units around these themes.
