JESSICA MAGSINOIndeed it was a very fruitful learning experience. Many Thanks
Erwin OrtizThank you for the opportunity to learn and widen my perspectives about global citizenship education.
ALBERT MERCADOVery informative and it could be of great help in my teaching practice. Integration of Global Citizenship Education may inform and change the perspective of my students in different ways. May this course reach every concern and encourage them to integrate GCED to capacitate and increase the students' learning.
Iona Ofelia ZanoriaVery rich in information and it ignites me to integrate GCED in my class
JANDY DanzalanVery informative!
Mingxin LiThe course helps me realize the identity as a global citizen. All teachers around the globe are supposed to learn GCED pedagogies, making it a sustainable development in education
Marc Andrew PeñasThis course truly struck me because it helped me understand the importance of education for social change and for developing a global perspective free from racial prejudice.
I adore the GCED program and urge everyone to enroll in it in order to better oneself, others, and society as a whole by acting as a change agent. It equips one to be a confident leader who can handle any issue that arises in society.
The GCED course I'm taking has my whole satisfaction.
Maria Joanna Benita GutierrezVery informative course. It helps me a lot. Thank you very much.
Marcia Nina C. SalvadorThe course is inspiring and very informative. Thank you very much!
Bernadette DiangsonThe course taught me to become an informed citizen and critically literate; that I should be socially connected and respectful of diversity and differences among people; and that I should be ethically responsible and engaged as a human. Inevitably, this course is essential, especially in today's society where we should not only think of ourselves but, also others. I hope to pass on my learning in this course in whatever way I can. Thank you for this opportunity.
