In this event, three students studying the Global Learning MA, at the Development Education Research Centre (DERC), will present their dissertation projects. 

The Global Learning MA is a distance learning programme which introduces students to a range of perspectives and approaches to global learning, global citizenship education and education for sustainable development.

Following the presentations, there will be a Q&A. Participants will have a chance to register questions for the speakers.

This event will be particularly useful for researchers, practitioner researchers and practitioners.

Events are free and open to staff, students, alumni and the public. All are welcome to attend.

About the Speakers

Michael Jones

His research focuses on Global Citizenship Education in informal learning spaces which are run by a local initiative in Baghdad, Iraq. Particularly, his research looked at how students’ perceptions of Global Citizenship Education were shaped within these spaces.

Kathryn Abell

Her research chose to examine how universities in the UK construed the concept of Global Citizenship when designing and delivering non-credit bearing GC programmes. The research further aimed to discern any link between GC typologies and the skills and knowledge outcomes of the programmes.

In simple terms; what type of GC do universities deliver to students and what are the expected outcomes? 

Tessa Oakley

Her research aims to address the lack of focus on teacher voices in the literature of Global Citizenship Education, particularly the experiences of international primary school teachers.
