Inspiring learning for a fairer future

Change the story, change the world

Wednesdays 16th & 23rd September 5 – 6.30pm

Two-part online training for Scottish secondary teachers of all subject areas. We will examine the power and influence of stories in relation to major development challenges such as the climate crisis and inequality. We will explore the craft of storytelling and how this has an impact on the values of our communities. Teachers will critically reflect on the narratives, frames and stories used within their own teaching practice and will be introduced to tools, methods and activities that can be used when dealing with global citizenship education.
