About this Micro-Credential

Through the areas of focus of citizenship and diversity (CD) you will be exposed to contemporary pressing issues which impact how individuals and groups are included and accepted within the society they occupy.


The Micro-Credential will delve into the macro and micro views of CD: from global citizenship education to inclusion in the classroom, striving to raise an understanding of how the larger scope issues affect globally but eventually trickle into the individual classroom and how, as educators, this can be moulded to offer a reverse effect, where classroom teaching and learning spreads outwards.  The Micro-Credential focusses on the idea of creating acceptance rather than tolerance: a true understanding of what it is to be a member of a diverse society.  It takes the role that teachers have and investigates how this goal can be best achieved.
