About this event
This event has been organised to present and debate the content of Issue 31 of the Centre for Global Education’s bi-annual, open access, peer reviewed journal Policy and Practice: A Development Education Review. The theme of this issue is ‘The Policy Environment for Development Education’ which aimed to take stock of how national and international policies are interacting with the development education (DE) and global learning sector.
Issue 31 included articles on development education in the formal education and adult and community sectors, and the full issue is available here. Three of the articles published in Issue 31 will be presented at this seminar and the aim is to enable authors to debate their articles with readers to facilitate discussion on good practice in development education. The three papers being presented at the seminar are:
- A Policy at a Standstill: A Critical Analysis of Global Education in the Polish National Curriculum (Dobrawa Aleksiak and Magdalena Kuleta-Hulboj)
- The Wrong Tool for the Job? The Application of Result-Based Approaches in Development Education Learning (Mags Liddy and Susan Gallwey)
- The Policy Environment for Global Education, Development Education and Awareness Raising: Reasons to be Cheerful While the Future is Unwritten (Liam Wegimont)
