Project Work in Teacher Training as Part of Peace Education. Peace Education Miniprints No. 58.
The project oriented work of teacher training projects on peace educations leads the participants toward a common process of learning and experiencing. The two projects in this miniprint focus on street theater activities and international workshops. Four elements characterize the project-oriented work: (1) project on university level are dependent on cooperative planning, execution, and evaluation on an interdisciplinary basis; (2) projects should refer to social problems and to the future professions of the students; (3) the results should have an impact on the social surroundings (university, school, community); and (4) project work on social and political problems in the field of education have to be a part of applied peace education. Following descriptions of the street theater and the workshop projects, a list provides six international workshops on peace education that have been organized in Denmark (1982), Great Britain (1984), the Netherlands (1986), Germany (West Berlin, 1988), Hungary (1990), and Poland (1992). The aim and methods of each workshop show the focus of the events with each emphasizing process-oriented learning with teachers as facilitators. (Author/CK)
