A training for teachers aiming at equipping teachers of Primary and Secondary Education with skills on how to incorporate Global/ Development Education in class was successfully implemented by FWC at Pedagogical Institute in Limassol on 1st and 4th March 2010 as part of the E.U.–funded project “Accessing Development Education”.
26 teachers from all across Limassol participated in the interactive workshops which were conducted by experienced teachers who have been active in the field of Global/ Development Education and have taken part in capacity-building activities as part of the E.U.-funded project “Accessing Development Education”
During the training, teachers explored the main issues, skills and attitudes promoted by Development Education by the use of interactive participatory methods which also form part of Development Education methodology. Furthermore, they also discussed different ways of incorporating the global dimension in their lessons in class.
Teachers showed great interest in the activities and found the sessions quite useful for their teaching. Some of them said that they felt motivated enough to implement some of the activities they had learnt about in class.
Future Worlds Center promised to keep in touch with the participant teachers and provide material and further information regarding the European Conference of Development Education expected to take part from 8-10 April in Limassol as part of the project.
