Book launch: Global Citizenship Education in the Global South
Discussion event with inputs from 8 contributors to a wide-ranging new book edited by Emiliano Bosio and Yusef Waghid
The UNESCO Chair in Global Citizenship Education in Higher Education (University of Bologna), in collaboration with the Academic Network on Global Education & Learning (ANGEL), and with the support of Global Education Network Europe (GENE), is organizing an International Summer School on Researching Global Education and Learning, with the focus this year on Using literature. This event, along with the other activities of the ANGEL network, are co-funded by the European Union.*
The Summer School aims to provide students with a theoretical outline of Global Education research, as well as practical skills for systematically reviewing literature - drawing on the established experience in ANGEL and looking at future developments.
The programme will offer a range of approaches and practical tools for interrogating databases, systematic reviewing, recent developments in qualitative reviews, and various types of synthesis and meta-analyses. A more conceptual module will address the topic of how to define the boundaries of Global Education and Learning (GEL) across different cultural and linguistic traditions. A practical exercise will focus on the development of research approaches that will inform the future direction of ANGEL’s Global Education Digest project.Torre Palazzo Comunale-Bertinoro” by Anneaux is licensed under CC BY 4.0
