Abstract [en]

Many years have passed since sustainable development (ESD) became world famous in the Brundtland Commission publication, “Our Common Future”; however, still many universities are unaware of it or confuse it with environmental sustainability. The ESD concept contrasts with existing teaching methods, mainly focused into resource depletion. This paper explores the perceptions of teachers and students towards including Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) into the teacher training programme in the Faculty of Education at the University of Buea, Cameroon. The main purpose of the paper  is to identify current ESD related teaching and learning in a teacher training programme and the opportunities for, and barriers to, further extensions of ESD. The results indicate that there is general support for the inclusion of ESD in the curriculum, but there is considerable uncertainty expressed by lecturers and students concerning how this can best be done. There is a general concern that additional embedding into the teacher training programme might lead to reductions in the amount of core subject matter being taught. The programme and ESD agendas are to an extent seen by lecturers and students as conflicting. ESD is viewed mainly in terms of curriculum content as opposed to the pedagogy employed.
