- can identify the key competences of the future (UNESCO) in the field of education

- know about the 2030 Agenda and the 17 UN Development Goals (SDGs) and understand the importance of SDG 4 on Quality Education

- understand the importance of the Inner Development Goals (IDGs) in relation to self-perception, attitudes, learning and acting in a globalised, uncertain world

- are prepared to link the lifeworlds of their future target groups (school, educational work, companies, etc.) with global contexts

- know how to use methods of GCED appropriate to the target group

- critically deal with economic, social and ecological global challenges (such as the Corona crisis, climate change, global inequality) from an educational perspective 

- have developed and implemented small interdisciplinary educational projects in a heterogeneous group (language, field of study, origin, gender, etc.)

- reflect on their own positioning in global power relations (e.g. "critical whiteness", North-South relations)

- know which experts and institutions they can turn to in Tyrol for questions and support in implementing local educational projects on global issues.

The English-language proseminar "Global Citizenship Education in times of crisis? Introduction to the concept of GCED, SDGs and the Inner Development Goals" is aimed at students of all fields of study. The focus is on the question of how GCED can accompany learners in the field of education (school and extracurricular education, university, adult education, further education and training in companies) to an increasingly complex world in the face of major global crises. What is necessary from the perspective of GCED (attitudes, competences, values, knowledge) to contribute to global sustainable development and an active global citizenship?

The discussion of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Inner Development Goals (IDGs) supports the learning process of the heterogeneous, interdisciplinary group. In addition to literature work, various methods of co-creation, self-reflection and project work, smaller excursions to relevant institutions (Caritas Welthaus, Südwind, Impact Hub Tirol, Klimabündnis etc.) in Tyrol and discussions with experts are planned. 

NOTE: An excursion day is planned for 9 May, 10:00 - 17:00, outside Innsbruck. Please be sure to keep this day free.

The face-to-face seminar includes  interactive, process-oriented, interdisciplinary learning opportunities, literature work, innovative methods of co-creation and group work (service design thinking, anti-bias approach, Betzavta), self-reflection, project design and implementatio, visits to institutions active in the field of global education in Tyrol (e.g. Südwind Tirol, Caritas Welthaus) and an outdoor excursion to Stubaital.

- Openness for learning experiences in a heterogeneous group (language, origin, subject, etc.)
- Interest in educational work and global issues
- English language skills (different levels are taken into account)

The proseminar deals with all SDGs, emphasizing the indivisibility of the environmental, social and economic spheres.
