Course Reviews

    I had a great experience! The course was well-organized and informative, and I learned a lot from the instructor and the other participants.

    The instructor was very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter. He did a great job of explaining the concepts in a way that was easy to understand. He also provided us with many opportunities to practice what we were learning through hands-on exercises and assignments.

    The other participants in the course were also wonderful people. We were all from different backgrounds and had different levels of experience, but we all learned from each other and supported each other.

    However, I do have one suggestion for improvement. I wish that there had been more group work in the course, especially in weeks 4 and 5. I think that group work would have been a great way to engage better with the training participants and to learn from each other's experiences.

    Overall, though, I had a great experience with the course and I would definitely recommend it to others

    I recently had the privilege of enrolling in a course that has truly broadened my horizons and enriched my understanding of human rights and global citizenship education (GCED). I extend my heartfelt appreciation to Prof. Dr. Jeff Plantilla, Ms. Archita, Ms. Meto, and the entire GCED team for their dedication, expertise, and unwavering commitment to promoting human rights education. This course has been a transformative experience, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to learn from such exceptional Professor. I wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone seeking to gain a profound understanding of human rights and its intersection with global citizenship education. Thank you for empowering us to make a positive impact on the world.
