Making Global Connections: The Knowledge, Understanding and Motivation of Trainee Teachers
Holden, Cathie; Hicks, David
Teaching & Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v23 n1 p13-23 Jan 2007
This article begins by noting some of the global concerns that young people have today and highlights the crucial role of global education in responding to such concerns. It then considers the importance of teacher training in such matters and reports on a preliminary study relating to the initial training of teachers in England. In particular this raises questions about the knowledge and understanding that such students bring to their courses. It concludes by identifying some of the consequent dilemmas faced by teacher trainers working in this context.
