Citizenship education, international competences and extended reality: Immerse yourself
by. Drs. Gerry H. STEGEMAN
Higher education supports students in acquiring competences: a mix of knowledge, skills and attitudes. Experience has shown that it is precisely attitude and skills that ensure a better connection to the labor market, in whatever sector in whatever country. This article examines the developments and experiences in authentic learning environments in relation to international aspects of citizenship education. It discusses the possibilities and limitations of the use of extended reality in general and in this context. The author links this to the educational and societal developments in Albania and her home country The Netherlands, during and after COVID-19, and shares her thoughts on the need for continuing attention on new forms of citizenship education. The pandemic makes it necessary to reconsider past self-evident interpersonal relations and international relations.
