Project Concept – Introduction
Embedding a Democratic Culture Dimension in Teacher Education Programmes (EDCD-TEP) aims is to design a Framework to embed the competences for democratic culture in primary teacher education programmes within partner countries and overall Europe. The framework will consist on:
1. Examining the present status of the democratic culture dimension in initial primary teacher education policy and practice;
2. Identifying, gathering examples and making recommendations of how policy and practice can better enable the inclusion of the democratic culture dimension in initial primary teacher education;
3. Developing resources to educate pre-service and in-service teachers on how they can consider the democratic culture dimension in their practices.
