Two scholars from Laval University (Quebec) present their research findings to UNESCO
Clermont Gauthier, a well-known researcher and Anthony Cerqua, a PhD candidate, presented their work during a seminar organized by the Task Force on pedagogy and its implications for teacher training on 24th September 2013.
At first, they shared the initial findings of a study on the pedagogical foundations of international organizations’ policy with regards to teachers. With UNESCO, the World Bank and OECD as their target institutions, the researchers reported on what the review of UNESCO programs has revealed. The organization – for the researchers – seems to have no clear position on pedagogical approaches that underlies its work in Member States. The discussions raised the following question: “Should the role of an organization like UNESCO be to recommend a pedagogical approach at all? Or is this choice the prerogative of each sovereign country?”. We believe this debate deserves a follow up interaction with various experts from the organization, namely from the International Bureau for Education (IBE) and other external stakeholders.
