University College Dublin Global School Room – An Initiative to Promote Active Citizenship

This is a campus-community partnership/ civic engagement initiative between the GlobalSchoolRoom, Don Bosco Silchar, Cornmarket Financial Services, and University College Dublin (UCD) supporting the delivery of mutually successful connections between Irish teachers and teachers in northeast rural India.

The UCD School of Education, International Affairs, and Teaching and Learning have collaborated across the university to offer professional development for teachers in India, for whom teacher training and continuing education is minimal to non-existent. Founded by UCD academic staff, this university partnership enables Indian teachers in remote areas to access teacher training and a UCD Diploma. Future plans include collaborations with the University of New Delhi and SelfHelp Africa for program enhancements and capacity building to spread education by global citizens for global citizens. http://globalschoolroom.net/html/programme/overview.html
