Launch of ANGEL Early Career Researcher Sub-Network.
Connect with fellow researchers, exchange ideas, and explore potential collaborations at this first network event.
The report “Europe and North America Regional GCED Network” is based on a research project funded by Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding (APCEIU) and Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens (BKMC), led by ANGEL coordinator Massimiliano Tarozzi (International Research Centre on Global Citizenship Education, University of Bologna) and member Lynette Shultz (Centre for Global Citizenship Education and Research, University of Alberta) as Principal Investigators.
The research team was composed of Carrie Karsgaard and Carla Inguaggiato, with the support of Kester Muller and Francis Owusu.
This study addresses an important gap in GCED research by exploring how GCED is constructed and moves across networks of actors, including governments, NGOs, researchers, and educational institutions, among others.
While in recent years some research has explored the role of both offline and digital networks (Twitter in particular) in shaping educational policy, this is the first study to apply social network analysis to GCED educational policy and practice.
