Abstract

Considering that teachers’ knowledge, perceptions, dispositions, and attitudes can affect their teaching and pedagogical practice, this chapter investigates the factors forming pre-service teachers’ perception on ESD through a case study of geography pre-service teachers in Vietnam. We conducted in-depth interviews with 25 pre-service teachers to investigate factors forming their ESD perception. The results show that there are two main factor groups forming geography pre-service teachers’ ESD perceptions: external and internal factors. The results have meaningful implication for teacher education to improve teachers’ awareness and understanding about ESD.
