Perspectives from researchers

A short video from researchers from the Development Education Research Centre within IOE, UCL's Faculty of Education and Society.

Now that we have explored the range of terms that are familiar to members of the group, let’s listen to some researchers from the Development Education Research Centre, at the UCL Institute of Education.

They each discuss their own perspective on key global education terms and how they see them as important to the field. They also outline key issues and lessons they have learned from their own research.

The speakers are:

  • Professor Douglas Bourn, who gives his views on global learning and talks about his work with teachers and research on global skills.
  • Professor Massimiliano Tarozzi, who talks about the concept of global citizenship and its importance to educational practice.
  • Dr Clare Bentall, who provides her thoughts on global learning and global citizenship and their relevance to teachers in practice.

When you’re watching the videos try to consider which terms resonate most with your own ideas and experiences.
