Teaching Summary

I am particularly keen to work with research students who have an interest in pedagogy and approaches to global learning, education for sustainable development (including education and climate change) and global citizenship education. These themes and concepts can be interpreted in a number of ways and in a range of settings (schools, higher education, communities), and I would welcome proposals which seek to explore them in diverse national or social contexts or from new research perspectives.
