Abstract

Through Other Eyes (TOE) is a free online study programme primarily aimed at teacher education focusing on engagements with indigenous/ aboriginal perceptions of global issues. Like Open Spaces for Dialogue and Enquiry (OSDE), TOE is licensed under creative commons. The program is currently used in 33 higher education institutions around the world, as well as in nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) oriented toward development education, study, and volunteering abroad. TOE was originally hosted by the Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice at the University of Nottingham and Global Education Derby (NGO) and was developed from 2006 to 2008. The project was partly funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) through the Development Awareness Fund (DAF). The development of TOE involved a number of partnerships with academic and civil society institutions, including Manchester Metropolitan University, the Centre for Research in Development Education and Global Learning (Institute of Education, University of London), and Survival International. The baseline inquiry on indigenous knowledge systems was conducted with informants in five communities located in Brazil, Peru, Tanzania, Aotearoa (New Zealand), and Australia.
