At Generation Global, we believe that our world needs educators who appeal to a sense of common humanity, who foster personal and shared responsibility, who nurture intercultural understanding, and who know how to do this by integrating and using dialogue to develop global citizens.
Generation Global is launching our first online educator course, 'Introduction to Dialogue', designed to equip formal and non-formal educators with an understanding of dialogue skills, and the resources needed for implementing intercultural dialogue practices into their learning communities.
Join us on:
- Date: 29th September 2022
- Time: 13:00 UTC
- Sign up: https://go.generation.global/mooc
The event will bring together diverse voices to share their experiences with the 'Introduction to Dialogue' course and help you understand how to incorporate dialogue into your learning communities by listening to experts and practitioners.
Take a look at their profiles and the topics they will be discussing at the virtual event.
