Teachers' Education and School Geography in Brazil and Spain: A Case Study
MetadataShow full item record
This work deals with the curriculum organization of the Geography teachers' education course at Santiago de Compostela University (USC, Spain) and at Universidade Estadual Paulista, Campus Rio Claro (UNESP-RC, Sao Paulo, Brazil). We have analyzed the curriculum, course programs and several documents. Our observations indicate that a simplicistical comparison between both institutions is anachronic, since they have different structures and contexts. However, it is possible to indicate some approaches: the need of promoting links between teaching and research as well as between the disciplines that have a specific content and the ones with a didactic-pedagogical nature.
