Global citizenship from a student perspective

Both global citizenship and research literacy are among the 5 Oxford Brookes University graduate attributes intended to prepare our students to play a positive part in the interrelated spheres of professional and civic engagement.

In the context of and HEA seminar ‘Teaching the Graduate Attribute of Global Citizenship’, held at OBU in May 2012, undergraduates who had prepared ethnographic research papers investigating students’ intercultural identity and engagement with difference in the student body were invited to present their research in poster format.

The two posters presented here demonstrate an individual engagement with the principles of interculturality as outlined in their course, and a more or less explicit engagement with the values and practices of the global citizen. Being given the opportunity to present their work at an academic seminar for professionals, also gave the students an opportunity to develop important interpersonal skills of communicating complex research in a simplified and accessible format.
