The Teaching and Learning Units are educational paths that focus on one complex issue through a transdisciplinary approach using a number of learning tools.
Such learning experiences can stimulate scholastic knowledge as well as skills to help students and teachers deal with everyday life or big, complex issues.
The TLUs are crucial tools to educate our students towards Global Citizenship and Sustainability.
Get up and goals! encourages teachers to work together and develop the same topics with their classes through the lens of different disciplines.
The TLUs help teachers tackle some of the problems that humanity has to cope with, today and in the future: climate change, international inequalities, migration, gender inequalities.
You can find an overview of such topics in our Big ideas on global issues page.
Then Get up and goals! TLUs contain:
- Our selection of topics and learning activities about each one of the global issues: evidences, causes, effects and so on. Teachers can select one or more topics and related activities to explore with their classes, without losing the overall approach.
- Global citizenship education approach and practical suggestions: how can you lead learning conversations to uncover your students’ bias? How can you run a roleplaying game to enhance emotional involvement? How can you encourage your students towards individual or group work? How can you and your students design a citizenship action to show them that they can be global responsible citizens? How can you support your students in learning to learn, strengthening their key competences?
