This article introduces the guidelines for teaching and learning in the general education (GE) curriculum that corresponds to the 21st-century skills of global citizenship of Thailand and is being implemented in an open university. This curriculum focuses on enhancing and developing students’ knowledge, skills, and competencies all of which are meant to be used as ‘soft skills’ in day-to-day lives in the era of post-globalization by designing the GE curriculum in accordance with the Thailand qualification framework for higher education (TQF:HEd). The principle behind this is that the GE curriculum is implemented in undergraduate programs. That is, 24 credits of GE courses are mandatory for all students, and in this regard, students will gain extensive knowledge in social science, science, mathematics, and humanities, as well as the 21st-century skills of global citizenship. The GE curriculum is designed to expand intellectual perspectives, promote cognitive skills and desirable attitudes towards life. In addition, this curriculum elevates the learning management standards in the GE department in line with the concept of educational management 4.0 and in order to integrate and put such concept into practice, leading to the highest benefits for the students' lives in the digital era.
