Welcome to the Global Education for Teachers MOOC! Watch this short introductory video by Nicole Blum and Fran Hunt.
Welcome to the Global Education for Teachers MOOC. I’m Nicole Blum. I’m a lecturer and tutor in the Development Education Research Centre at UCL, Institute of Education. Our centre specialises in research and teaching on global education, global learning, global citizenship, education and related areas. Hi, my name’s Fran Hunt. I also work in the Development Education Research Centre. We developed this MOOC as a way of sharing expertise and experience from DERC with teachers around the world. As well as supporting teachers to develop their own practise. We’ll start with a brief overview of the MOOC, its aims, and its structure.

Welcome to our course, Global Education for Teachers. In this short video you’ll meet the Lead Educators, Dr Nicole Blum and Dr Fran Hunt.

We are based at the UCL Institute of Education’s Development Education Research Centre (DERC), which acts as a hub for knowledge generation, new thinking, and high quality research output on development education, global learning, and global citizenship.
