Preparing Critically & Globally Conscious Teachers

O'Reilly, Gerry (2017) Preparing Critically & Globally Conscious Teachers. In: Gilles, Jean-Luc, (ed.) Linking Research and Training in Internationalization of Teacher Education with the PEERS Program: Issues, Case Studies and Perspectives. Peter Lang Verlag, Lausanne, Switzerland, pp. 57-74. ISBN 9783034329781

This chapter explores the preparation of globally conscious teachers. Concepts of training and growth through education encompassing competencies and skills are surveyed, as is critical thinking, and autonomous learning. Implicit throughout is applied work being done by PEERS teams worldwide, linked to the University of Teacher Education, State of Vaud (HEP Vaud) in Lausanne. For global consciousness, mindfulness is crucial. Individuals must be self and locally thoughtful – linking skills, concepts, peoples, places and cultures. Teacher education takes place within permeable historical and geographical parameters, but especially political economic processes linked to top-down and bottom-up interfaces. Professional responsibility is paramount to developing awareness of processes and structures, where future teachers become critical citizens and actors. Globalization and sustainability education are highlighted, while looking at examples from a teacher education institution in Ireland
