Road to Global Citizenship: An Educator’s Toolbook is a comprehensive pedagogical resource that helps educators of any academic discipline move from aspiration to action to teach in ways that foster global citizenship. It covers eight topics ranging from the working definition of global citizenship to the assessment of teaching and learning. Through reflection exercises, teaching activities, and real teaching stories by educators at UBC, the toolbook invites educators to actively and critically engage with engraining global citizenship in the core of their teaching environment.
