Integrating Humane Education into Teacher Education: Meeting Our Social and Civic Responsibilities
Tate, Kathleen J.
Teacher Education and Practice, v24 n3 p301-315 Sum 2011
Debate continues about what should shape and inform teaching and teacher education programs. In the age of globalization, considerations related to global competence, awareness, and community can no longer be ignored. Humane education, a newer and lesser-known area, addresses these considerations; its vision is such that every institute of learning should offer humane education to its students to prepare them to be contributing global citizens. It is time for theories and research to address cognitive, academic, affective, and global aspects. This article discusses humane education as a new paradigm for teacher education in the context of globalization. (Contains 1 table.)
