Eduglocal is a training course for teachers who want to encourage their learners to engage in Global issues as a local level. The course, held a several venues throughout Europe is open to teachers, teacher trainers and educationalists at all levels of education.
The course looks at the interdependency between such global themes as Climate Change, Global Citizenship, Food, Health and Migration. It focuses on a closer relation between such global themes and finding answers to problems at a local level. The course explores the relationships between Civil Society Organisations and educational Establishments. The teaching material is based upon a series of specifically developed eLearning WebQuests and resources.
The themes will be explored in the context of lectures, study trips and workshops in urban and rural settings. Learning outside the classroom will be enhanced with mobile learning through tablets and smartphones, which are now revolutionising outdoor education.
