OSDE is a methodology for the introduction of global issues and perspectives in educational contexts, such as teacher, adult, higher and secondary education.
The OSDE methodology is being developed by a group of educators and researchers in eight countries. The initiative is hosted by the Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice (CSSGJ) at the University of Nottingham.
The OSDE methodology offers a set of procedures and ground rules to structure safe spaces for dialogue and enquiry about global issues and perspectives focusing on interdependence. It aims to promote the development of:
- Independent and informed thinking
- Enquiry skills and systems thinking
- Critical, political and transnational literacies
- Responsible and accountable reasoning and action
