Workshop 

A7. Global Competencies in the 21st century

As many national education systems move towards competency-based approaches at all levels, from pre-school to third and fourth level, there is growing recognition of the need to include critical global competencies within our understanding of what people need to know and to learn. But the understanding of global competencies is not uncontested. What are the differing and competing understandings that are struggling to predominate within education policy discourse? Which understandings are in keeping with a local and global justice perspective, and which are not? How can Global Education policy-makers choose? This workshop will invite reflexion and contributions of the participants based on the experiences of their countries with Global Competencies.
