Globalizing Teacher Training: Embedding Global Education Perspectives in Multi-Disciplinary Pre-Service Teacher Programs
Reynolds, Ruth; Brown, Joanna; Bradbery, Deborah; Donnelly, Debra; Ferguson Patrick, Kate; Macqueen, Suzanne
Australian Association for Research in Education (NJ1), Paper presented at the Joint Australian Association for Research in Education and Asia-Pacific Educational Research Association Conference (AARE-APERA 2012) World Education Research Association (WERA) Focal Meeting (Sydney, New South Wales, Dec 2-6, 2012)
This study presents an overview of the issues involved when a group of teacher educators implemented a global education focus across a variety of education programs at their university. Although these problems and issues arose from the global education agenda, some of the lessons learned and problems encountered can be applied to teacher educators in other fields. Their experiences provide a glimpse into the teacher educator world--a world of compromise. These experiences encompass the personal dilemmas, the professional learning and decision making, and the political dimensions of their work and provide a case study in professional co-operation and collaboration in the service of an ideal of encouraging a global perspective in a new generation of teachers. (The study was supported by Ausaid with resources and professional materials provided by the NSW Professional Teaching Council.)
