Description of the session

This session will share the latest updates from the DICE Project, a model for integrating GCE into initial teacher education in Ireland. The project recently celebrated 20 years, and in this session we will share what has worked well for us and some of the challenges we have had to overcome in that time. Additionally, this session will serve to share the latest (freely available) DICE publication which is a book titled: Global Citizenship Education: Curious Teachers, Critical Classrooms. The book is aimed at initial teacher education and may be of use to others in the SIG.

The session is hosted via Zoom.



We aim to share good practice as engaged with through the DICE Project.
