Creative approaches to staff development: global education in ITE in The Gambia
The elements of global education should be at the heart of all learning and teaching. In ITE we often protect „our subject‟ in the belief that it should have more prominence in the curriculum and more teaching time in school. In this article a group of ITE tutors comment on their learning about global education and its inclusion in their subject following a study trip, with students and teachers, to The Gambia. A truly cross curricular strand develops and ideas within subjects are matched to key concepts of global education. An experiential model of tutor CPD evolves which includes personal challenge of values and attitudes.
