GLOBAL COMPETENCIES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

Osijek, November 14 – 15, 2022

 

We invite you to participate in the international scientific conference organized by the students of Postgraduate university study program Pedagogy and Contemporary School Culture. The conference will be held in Osijek at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and online via Zoom.

The goal of the conference is to emphasize the importance of development of global competencies, for both students and creators of educational policies. The development of global competencies allows improved mutual understanding, interconnection of the global and the local, critical thinking and an increase in competence for future challenges. Can we inspire students to be curious and motivated, open to diversity and ready to take responsibility? Can we prepare students for critical thinking and how? These are some of the questions we plan on answering.

Topics of the conference:

  • education for the 21st century – a view into the future
  • educational system reform on all levels: preschool, primary school, secondary school, university level education and lifelong learning
  • curriculum for the development of global competencies
  • interdisciplinarity in developing global competencies
