Project Description

This project aims at introducing courses in development education (DE) in the area of teacher education within selected universities in the Czech Republic and Poland and promotes them in a wider number of universities. In this way the pre-teachers that will participate in pilot courses at their universities will be able to share their knowledge and skills in DE during their lessons with pupils in schools. These experienced teachers, equipped with sufficient knowledge and skills necessary to teach successfully DE in schools, will educate next generations of citizens, voters and actors in development on all levels (as parents, scientists, teachers, activists, politicians, etc.). These pupils will be offered a chance to become aware of their impact on people from Southern countries and commit and support global poverty reduction by changing their behaviour in addressing the MDG agenda. The project thus ensures a crucial link between teacher training at universities and teaching DE in schools that can contribute to quality DE, embedded in the formal education system.
