Geography Education for "An Attainable Global Perspective"
Klein, Phil; Pawson, Eric; Solem, Michael; Ray, Waverly
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v38 n1 p17-27 2014
This article considers approaches to promoting global perspectives as both cognitive and affective learning outcomes within geography education. Particular attention is paid to the work of Robert Hanvey, who proposed "An Attainable Global Perspective" in the 1970s, which explicitly ties to the content and perspectives embedded in geographic education. However, this approach was situated within a particularly American perspective on the nature and value of "global" education. This paper both endorses and updates Hanvey's ideas, aiming to spur dialog among geographers to internationalize the discussion of how geography education can foster more truly global perspectives.
