Epistemology is one of the subject our students come across at our Teacher Training College. Why should a teacher learn about Epistemology, and what is the connection between this discipline and education?
The Earth is changing; our environment is dying. If one of the primary roles of education is to equip people with the knowledge to make a positive difference in society, why is Planet Protection most often not included in schools’ curricula?

DNS 2017, the senior team, is now finalising one of the last periods of DNS programme: Teaching Practice. Teaching Practice lets us experiment in the reality of the classroom, apply teaching methodologies and most importantly, make mistakes and learn from them.
