Today, the world seems smaller because the internet connects everything. What students learn at school needs to prepare them for living and working in a connected, international world. Global and local topics need to be brought together: and this happens in so-called glocal (global + local) learning. However, this type of learning is not yet used in many schools. The author of this book believes that education needs to change so that students can act as responsible citizens within a global society as change agents once they have finished their education.
The glocal curriculum, which is introduced in “The Glocal Curriculum” by Beatrice John is based on experiences from the “Global Classroom: Liberal Arts Education in the 21st Century”, a teaching and research project of Leuphana University Lüneburg (Germany) and Arizona State University (USA). Using a workshop approach, the Handbook provides valuable guidance for strategic university development, curriculum and program developers, quality managers, teachers and instructors who are interested in innovative approaches that allow the development of critical and transformative mindsets, knowledge, and skills in order to address the sustainability problems of the 21st century.
