The School of Global Citizenry, a program of Tumbuh Global, is an independent, CEU certified, global citizenship education (GCED) online school of lifelong learning for adult learners from religious, social, and civic backgrounds and a training center for new and emerging online educators. Prior to founding The School of Global Citizenry, we analyzed two years worth of research on and experience with adult learners, spent six months researching and analyzing the independent continuing education standards of the most prominent seminaries, divinity schools, judicatories, and denominations in the United States of America, and conducted a pre-COVID analysis of existing online learning platforms. And with this analysis and a decade of experience with adult spiritual formation and training in adult learning theory, we developed The Diamond Standard™ for CEU Certification. A continuing education quality standard that either meets or exceeded the requirements of the schools, organizationals, and denominational bodies in our study.
The Diamond Standard™ for CEU Certification is a research based quality standard for adult lifelong learning. This standard ensures that global learners are receiving quality education and training in a CEU certified learning environment under the facilitation and leadership of CEU qualified instructors and administrators. In other words, we took the existing independent standards of prominent institutions and created the most comprehensive set of CEU qualifications currently available. By establishing industry qualifications for CEU approved instruction and requiring that all of our educators meet those standards, we raise the standard for adult lifelong learning and the standard for those administering similar content to ensure quality continuing education learning is available to all.
The Diamond Standard™ for CEU Certification also integrates the core concepts of UNESCO’s global citizenship education together with the latest research in adult online learning for a robust learning experience specifically for postgraduate adult learners from religious, social, and civic backgrounds. It is truly diamond quality.
