Project Summary

In 2007-2008, the UBC secondary teacher education program curriculum will be revised with an increased emphasis on global citizenship, focusing in particular on the topics of social and ecological issues, sustainability, collective action, and the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) across all aspects of the program.

This three-year project will begin in the 12-month secondary program, with its approximately 500 students distributed across 18 cohort groups. It will also involve tenure-stream faculty, graduate teaching assistants, graduate student mentors, university-based sessional instructors, and school-based field experience advisors. There will be a particular emphasis on the use of ICT, conceived as a means to enable learning and pedagogical effectiveness, as a means for people to establish and maintain collaborative connections, as an opportunity for students to develop proficiencies through engagement with various learning technologies, and as an educational space for students to explore and interrogate global citizenship through collective action.
