SCOTDEC November Newsletter: Global Citizenship Education

You’re invited to this one-off Erasmus+ event for Scottish teachers to connect with European colleagues

All primary and secondary teachers from across Scotland are invited to this one-off digital event on 18th November 2020 to discuss inclusion, rights and active participation with other teachers from all over Europe!

Teachers will hear from César Bona, author of The New Education and nominee of the Global Teacher Prize, along with a panel of experts on pupil rights and inclusive education from across the continent.

There will also be a chance to hear from Scottish teachers discussing how they embed inclusive, pupil led practices in their classroom – Joanne Doddie from Fox Covert Primary School will be on hand to share ideas and exchange dialogue.

This free event will mark the end of the Erasmus+ funded InScool project – a European collective with Scotdec as the Scottish partner.
