We are delighted to feature in the August 2019 TEESNet publication of ‘Research in Action Getting to the Heart of the Sustainable Development Goals: The Role of Teacher Education in Prompting Critical Engagement and Action’. You will find Children in Crossfire’s paper on page 29.
The paper presents Children in Crossfire’s ‘Development Education Educating the Heart’ model, and outlines how the model is grounded in theory, and is intended as a means to respond to the call within the Global Education First Initiative and SDG 4.7. Overall, the model and theoretical grounding are presented as an ‘offer’ to practitioners and researchers interested in implementing and researching transformative Development Education approaches for cultivating global citizenship. It is ‘offered’ as a pedagogical approach that, at the very least, attempts to merge critical and emotional engagement with ethics rooted in compassion, as the impetus for socio-political transformation.
