Dear global issues educators!
Thanks to your participation in the ethical global issues pedagogy workshops in 2018, a
teacher resource was created to adapt the HEADSUP tool for use in secondary and
upper-secondary school classrooms!
Together with teachers on the project, the resource has been shared widely at workshops in
Austria, Denmark, England, Finland, and Scotland, and more are planned! The Toronto
District School Board (the largest in Canada) is also working with the teacher resource.
Louise Sund and I shared it with the UNESCO teams working on Education for Sustainable
Development and Global Citizenship Education this week. It's being taken up by
curriculum review teams in the International Baccalaureate which involves 1000s of schools
around the world. There is a pilot project on its way in London to do a primary school
From your individual classrooms to wide ranging
educational organisations, the work we did together is presenting itself as extremely
relevant to today's ever-complex global context.
Please would you consider filling out this survey to let us know what you can about your
use of or interest in the resource. Also, you can let us know what challenges you see or
any further support you would like. That way, we can track and assess the resource and
make a case for further work together. It would be great to connect up teachers across the
world interested in this work.
Here is the survey (should take up to 10 minutes):
Please pass it along to anyone else you may have shared the resource with or think would
be interested in it. And, let me know if you have any questions and/or would like to chat
I know everyone is beyond busy these days, so I truly appreciate your time.
