Abstract

The purpose of this research was to investigate the impact that planning, implementing and evaluating a classroom-based Sustainable Development/Global Citizenship project had on the participating teachers, particularly in terms of their knowledge and understanding, teaching and learning approaches and strategies, and values and attitudes relating to Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship Education (SDE/GCE). The initial research sample consisted of seventeen teachers who were undertaking a Chartered Teacher module entitled Education for a Sustainable Environment at the University of Strathclyde. From the original seventeen teachers, ten provided full sets of data that could be included for analysis.
