It provides students with an authentic learning experience designed to deepen their understanding of what it means to be a global citizen by developing their knowledge of Member States of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Australia’s relationship with the region.
This full-day program will see students represent and simulate a meeting between Australia and Member Sates of ASEAN to discuss the issues they currently face including trade, climate change and refugees with the aim for students to reach mutually agreeable solutions as delegates.
From the initial preparation to the actual simulation, students will use and develop a range of capabilities literacy through research, writing, presenting, and debating; technology capability from using innovative technologies to research and collaborate with others; critical and creative thinking such as developing arguments and identifying new solutions to problems; and personal and social capability by working in teams, handling challenging situations and establishing positive relationships with other students.
