Teaching Global Perspectives: Introducing Student Teachers to Development Education
Development Education represents a new vision of education that empowers the learner to assume responsibility for creating a more just and sustainable world. The Ubuntu Network specifically explores opportunities for its integration into post primary initial teacher education programmes in Ireland. This book draws from the diverse range of action research projects that have been undertaken by Teacher Educators involved in the network during the period from May 2008–2010. Furthermore, it provides an account of Teacher Educators’ endeavours to integrate Development Education into their teaching and professional practice. Contributions represent both the concurrent and consecutive models of teacher education, and will relate to specific subject content, subject pedagogies (methodologies) and foundational education disciplines.
