Mr Jeff Serf

I trained as a geography teacher before teaching in a range of urban schools in the West Midlands (England). During this time I became involved in a number of curriculum development projects focusing on geography and related subjects/areas, before I joined Wolverhampton University as a teacher trainer. After travelling widely in Europe, North America, Africa and Asia, I was a member of a study visit to the Gambia (West Africa) in 1984 that focused on the nature and implications of Development. Since then I have led a number of study visits to Morocco, Ghana and South Africa , which have explored ESD, development and citizenship. Each visit has been primarily a professional development experience for the particiapnts, but has also resulted in the publication of, for example, teaching resources. I have also been involved heavily in a number of school-based curriculum development projects aimed at raising teachers' awareness of and expertise in teaching about environmental and development issues.
