A gathering of the ANGEL SIG on Teacher Education.

ANGEL MeeTEing Point is a new series of online gatherings of ANGEL's Special Interest Group on Teacher Education, designed to bring the community together to discuss pertinent issues for all those with an interest in Teacher Education on topics relating to Global Education & Learning.

The first such meeting will be held online on the 18 January 2023, 14:00-15:00 (GMT), on the theme: Assessing global competence within teacher education programs. How to design and create a set of rubrics with a modified Delphi Method.


Description of the session

In today’s world, Global Competence represents a fundamental disposition for teachers who must be able to teach effectively in classrooms with students from diverse backgrounds and manage multiple learning contexts. For these reasons, it is necessary to set up educational activities during initial teacher education programs aimed at developing and assessing preservice teachers’ ability to be Global Competent. This study was aimed at designing and creating a set of rubrics that can be used by either teacher educators or preservice teachers, in this case, as a self-assessment instrument. The research design was based on a modified Delphi method composed of five rounds to collect both qualitative and quantitative data. A panel of 31 experts was involved in an iterative process until a consensus among the experts was reached. The rubrics can be employed in several contexts and situations such as: before and after an international experience, during or after a simulation or a workshop based on intercultural and real-world situations.



Sharing a new tool to assess the development of Global Competence among pre-service teachers.
