ESD-NET Training Workshop

UNESCO Bangkok-Chulalongkorn University
Bangkok (Thailand)
21 - 24 August 2007

The August 2007 ESD-NET Training Workshop, co-hosted by UNESCO Bangkok and the Faculty of Education at Chulalongkorn University, was the first official activity of the Asia-Pacific ESD-NET. The workshop aimed to determine how teacher education curricula currently align with ESD and identify gaps for focusing future ESD curriculum development, research and the integration of ICTs into teacher education. Prior to the workshop, representatives from participating TEIs were requested to carry out an analysis of their existing teacher education programmes to identify the strengths and areas for improving teaching and learning in line with ESD. Findings were presented through a pre-workshop report which set the stage for workshop content and discussions on curriculum, pedagogy, research and resources for ESD. The workshop concluded with TEIs developing action plans and next steps toward reorienting their teacher education programmes to address SD.
