Implications of Democratic Education for Teacher Education Programs

Formal education in Kurdistan Region needs urgent attention. The urgency for reform has been even more so since the VOID-19 pandemic disturbed the regular order of things. As a result, a new opportunity has surfaced to initiate reform in the fundamentals of education, especially in teaching. For the most part, democratic education in Kurdistan Region has been given minimum attention. Part of this inattention has been the result of a minimalist understanding of democracy and a technical approach to teaching and teacher education.

This presentation asks the questions: What is teaching? Who is a teacher? It presents an opportunity to redefine teaching based on the foundations of democratic education. It focuses on the significance of democratic values and dispositions in teaching and considers teachers as professional agents of transformation in society. This presentation discusses democratic education by offering implications in teaching and teacher education programs in Kurdistan Region.
