Globalization, polarisation, and a range of issues that affect people and nature around the globe, make a strong sense of global citizenship more important than ever before. We are living an age in which technology has profoundly influenced the ways we think, feel, act, communicate and collaborate; this raises all kind of questions, reveals needs and requires skills for understanding ourselves and others in this constantly changing world.
The so-called 21st Century Skills are considered the most important skills to succeed in today's workplace, since they can be universally applied to enhance ways of thinking, learning, working and living in the world. These skills are: critical thinking/reasoning, creativity/creative thinking, problem solving, metacognition, collaboration, communication and global citizenship
You should think of this course as a five-days voyage towards mastering these 21st century skills for global citizenship.
