Sharing GCED Action Ideas Utilizing Place-Based Learning Approach

APCEIU News - August 2019

An advanced training workshop to build capacity of Korean educators on developing and implementing GCED teaching methods was held in Malaysia. Co-organized by APCEIU and Arts-ED, a Malaysian educational NGO, the workshop hosted twenty primary and secondary school teachers from July 30 to August 3 in Penang.

With ‘GCED through Place-Based Learning (PBL) Approach’ as the main theme of the workshop, participants explored the utility of PBL as a tool to implement GCED. The workshop featured experience-centered programmes such as PBL case studies, PBL field visits, lectures, and visits to local schools followed by action plan design and presentation.

The participants could not only learn about the core principles of PBL but also observe actual cases of implementation at schools and the local community in Penang. They have also visited Chowrasta Market for two days, a famous traditional marketplace of Penang, as a fieldwork, which provided an opportunity to learn and apply PBL tools such as issue mapping and interviewing vendors and customers.
