This two part course is open to science teachers working in Scottish Education.

Explore how a global citizenship approach to science enables learners to appreciate the relevance of science and investigate how it can be used to answer vital questions to global challenges.

In this session, teachers will:

  • Consider what Global Citizenship means to you as a Science teacher
  • Explore some core Global Citizenship themes within the context of the Science BGE curriculum
  • Find out about methodologies, approaches and resources which support a Global Citizenship approach to Science
  • Reflect on ways to bring a Global Citizenship approach into your classroom


All courses run by the Scottish Development Education Centres are highly interactive, both to model the participatory global citizenship approach, and so we can share activities and methodologies for use in the classroom. This course will make use of breakout rooms and simple digital participation tools (all necessary instructions will be given!). It can be hard to participate fully on a phone or tablet, so we highly recommend you join the course on a desktop or laptop computer, with your microphone and video enabled.

Please note will be held on Zoom to make use of the interactive capabilities of this platform. Depending on your Local Authority, it might be easier to access the course on your own personal computer rather than a council one.

By registering for this course, you are automatically signing up for both parts.

If you have particular access needs, please contact us at so we can work together to create as positive an experience for you as we can.

All 32 local authority areas in Scotland are covered by a Development Education Centre – for full details, including locations and how to contact your local DEC, please visit
