Embedding EfS in Teacher Education: an introductory guide to using the Systems Change Model
Full recordShow full item record
Abstract[Extract] Sustainability is on the global agenda and education has been internationally identified as a key strategy for bringing about the necessary shift towards sustainability. Contemporary and future socio-ecological challenges set an overarching context for teacher education by predicating the kind of attitudes, understandings and competencies that will enable our future teachers to adequately prepare the citizens of tomorrow for what is predicted to be a volatile and uncertain future. Unfortunately, in practice, there is little evidence of this agenda in teacher education. This may be because of a lack of understanding of sustainability, why it is important to teacher educators, or how to engage with these ideas. We see this guide as one way in which to begin to address these issues.
