About GCED Online Campus
GCED Online Campus is an e-learning platform on Global Citizenship Education by APCEIU.
The platform provides GCED online courses for educators, special lecture series, case videos of GCED initiatives, and GCED-related teaching & learning materials. All courses and contents are free and accessible to every educator who is interested in GCED!
Having such e-learning resources at their fingertips, educators are encouraged to promote GCED in various settings, including classrooms, schools, and local communities.
This will ultimately contribute to what APCEIU has long been advocating: Learning to Live Together.
APCEIU has played a pivotal role in promoting GCED reflected in both the UNESCO Education 2030 and UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Global Citizenship Education (GCED) aims to empower learners to actively face and resolve global challenges and contribute to making a more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and secure world. 'Global citizenship' is a sense of belonging to a broader community and common humanity. It emphasizes political, economic, social and cultural interdependency and interconnectedness between the local, the national and the global. GCED aims to influence learners to develop this sense and to play active roles through three core conceptual dimensions: cognitive, socio-emotional, and behavioural.
• Learners develop skills for critical thinking and analysis
• Learners develop attitudes of empathy, solidarity and respect for differences and diversity
• Learners develop motivation and willingness to take necessary actions
