2 Knowledge and skills, showing cross-cultural awareness, and valuing human diversity. The ability to work effectively, and responsibly, in a global context. Knowledge of global perspectives on how disciplinary knowledge is represented and understood within other cultures; cross-cultural capability beginning with an awareness of our own culture and perspectives and the development of the confidence to question one’s own values and those of others responsibly and ethically; and responsible citizenship, actively engaging with issues of equity and social justice, sustainability and the reduction of prejudice, stereotyping and discrimination.

3 Global Citizenship case study Jo Feehily Faculty of Business Brookes Teaching Fellowship project

5 Harnessing Students’ Views Module: International Business Context Year 1, Semester 2 Early in Semester: Survey of students’ perceptions of Global Citizenship & responsible leadership development Later in the module students receive teaching on Global Citizenship, Responsible Leadership and graduate attributes & feedback from the survey

6 During the lecture students engage with an interactive questionnaire which captures their perceptions of global citizenship, responsible leadership and the PRME and how they wish to engage with these ideas during their time at university This intervention has been carried out for 2 years and is a permanent mechanism on the module Findings are fed forward to following compulsory modules

7 Findings 1.Some students are confused about the language linked to Global Citizenship 2.Broadly, different student bodies expressed different views about the potential of Global Citizenship within curricula 3.Generally, international students showed greater engagement with and broader understanding of concepts included within Global Citizenship 4.Some students expressed an interest in Global Citizenship beyond curricula, e.g. voluntary work and outreach

8 Recommendations Educators cannot impose meaning in relation to Global Citizenship within and beyond curricula as this would be counter to the core focus on multiple perspectives, inclusivity, and diversity Educators can explore more opportunities to ask students to share and explore their ideas about learning, teaching and assessing Global Citizenship to inform curricula review and enhancement
