Türk, Hakan; Atasoy, Emin
Review of International Geographical Education Online, v10 n1 spec iss p65-83 2020
The world has experienced in recent years, a number of factors such as the intensification of international relations, the acceleration of technological developments and the presence of transboundary problems have led to increased scientific interest in global issues. In this context, the aim of the study is to evaluate the geography course curriculum in Turkey in terms of global awareness education. In this study, a document review was conducted, one of the qualitative research designed. The obtained results were analyzed using descriptive analysis and content analysis. Within the scope of the study, overarching themes frequently highlighted and highlighted by researchers were identified from the topics derived from global awareness field literature. Geography course curriculum is evaluated within the scope of these themes. In general, it is seen that the issues related to global awareness are significantly involved in all aspects of the program, including its basic philosophy, general goals and achievements. When we look at the size of the attainments that are the application area of the program in detail, it is seen that there is no balanced distribution between the global themes highlighted in the attainments and that these are not designed to give individuals full global awareness. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a systematic global awareness learning area by using the relevant field writing while designing the geography course curriculum program. In addition, in order for students to understand the world from a holistic perspective, the program should include more themes for developing a global perspective.
