In collaboration with the not-for-profit Global Learning Centre, we have also recently developed, trialled and released a professional learning micro-credential Leading Education for Global Citizenship and Global Competence (https://www.cqu.edu.au/courses/leading-education-for-global-citizenship-and-global-competence).
