Teaching for Global Competence in a Rapidly Changing World

Sharing core norms and values
Nov 24, 2022 | Asia Society and OECD

Students gain global competence by practicing skills developed in the classroom and applying their learning to real-world topics. In this joint publication, the Asia Society and OECD provide practical guidance and examples of how educators can embed global competence into their curricula, instruction, and assessments. It finds that educating for global competence is an accessible, practical approach that is not beyond the reach of the average teacher. As examples in this publication show, this type of teaching is practiced across all age groups and subject areas in countries around the world. To spread global competence beyond individual teachers and their classrooms, education systems must leverage teachers as advocates and ambassadors, advance whole-school engagement strategies, and support innovative school leaders.
