Integrating Human Rights into Teaching Pedagogy: An Embodied Approach
This chapter investigates how teaching and learning about human rights law can be embedded into a university curriculum for pre-service teachers. Fundamental to this work is an understanding of the humanising, participatory, motivating and practical approach that can be achieved through embodied learning. Research in this field is strongly linked to attitudinal and behavioural change. The chapter discusses opportunities to use pedagogy that will develop cultural citizenship, interconnectedness and widespread participation to develop students’ professional and ethical identity through embodied learning.
