Teaching for global competence in a rapidly changing world.

This report from the OECD Asia Society defines the skills required by globally competent youth and provides practical guidance and examples of how educators can embed global competence into their existing curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The report identifies four key components for global competence. First to investigate the world beyond their immediate environment by examining issues of local, global, and cultural significance. Second, to recognize, understand, and appreciate the perspectives and world views of others. Third, to communicate ideas with diverse audiences by engaging in open, appropriate, and effective interactions across cultures. Fourth, to take action for collective well-being and sustainable development both locally and globally. The report discusses the implications of these requirements for educators and education systems.
