Project description

This project furthers the study “Development Education in Public Higher Education in Portugal: mapping representations and analysing experiences”, funded by Camões I.P. and FPCEUP, between October 2018 and May 2020.

This second edition, aims to: (1) expand the knowledge, problematization and consolidation of development and global citizenship education (DE/GCE) in higher education in Portugal (main goal); (2) conduct an in-depth study of co-curricular experiences that are potentially relevant for DE/GCE; (3) conduct an in-depth study on representations on DE/GCE and relevant elements in pedagogical experiences with students and staff; (4) create a co-curricular, transversal training offer on DE/GCE, open to studies of all courses as well as teaching and non-teaching staff (specific goals).

The project is focused on the University of Porto. It will produce innovative tools for analysing co-curricular and training initiatives, that contribute to promote knowledge, training and consolidation of Development Education and Global Citizenship Education in higher education institutions in Portugal.
