Teacher Education Curriculum for the 21st Century: Peace Education Program.
The spirit of human rights and the desire for peace should be an integral part of the educational curriculum at all levels. If teaching for peace and human rights is to be convincing and effective, however, teachers must be trained who are motivated and aware of the issues. Faculty of Chulalongkorn University, a leading teacher education institution in Thailand, have conceptualized a program to help make teachers aware of values and ideology they can personally convey in their teaching, and of multiple implications, which contribute to objectivity in their teaching. Peace education is a minor field of study for the bachelors degree in education. This minor consists of courses including: introduction to peace science, peace education, conflict management, and a practicum in peace education. The courses and a model for student teaching and clinical experience in peace education are described. (SP)
