Research

It is very important to IDEAS to keep exploring what difference global citizenship education makes in schools, to teachers and school leaders, children and young people, parents and communities. Research, evaluation and monitoring are a crucial part of this. Three important aspects of IDEAS work in this area are outlined below:

Research

Understanding Impact

The IDEAS report Understanding the Impact of Global Citizenship Education – Using a Theory of Change Approach provides an overview of the range of impacts IDEAS members are working towards and discusses how best to approach their assessment. It focuses, in particular, on how global citizenship education affects teachers and pupils and how this relates to attainment. The Theory of Change that it is based around offers a forward-looking framework that will over time enable us to make the evidence for global citizenship education more accessible, approachable and coherent. 

Global Citizenship Monitor

This is a new newsletter that will provide brief reports on findings from IDEAS projects and the work of its members, as well as drawing upon and highlighting the work of other researchers in the area. It is designed to engage stakeholders in sharing and developing meaningful ways of assessing work in this area and to support teachers’ professional enquiry.
