I want my whole department, learning team, or school to take the Building Blocks for Global Citizenship
modules together. Is this possible?
The self-directed modules involve readings and interactive digital resources; we recommend individuals have their own username and device to best engage with the content. Groups can take advantage of additional interactive discussion forums and virtual sessions to facilitate conversations within the course learning management system or hold those conversations in face-to-face settings. Contact Primary Source for more information on working in groups.
