Target group are schools and other relevant educational organizations which want their teachers/trainers/staff members to be aware and sensitive in relation to stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination, racism and inclusion and to know how to deal with those issues at their workplace or in their classrooms. Additionally they will be schools and organizations who wish to develop sector leading practice in the areas outlined above and have clear aims and strategies to improve their student’s communication competences and intercultural competences by using well structured activities and creative cooperative learning methods.
Participants will be expected to read the course program and pre released reading material.
That learners of the educational organization become open minded, critical and active citizens
That learners of the educational organization learn to live and work with others and learn to appreciate diversity in general
That learners are able to access these skills and competences as underpinning aspects of the curriculum
That teachers/trainers/participants become aware and sensitive about issues such as stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination, exclusion/inclusion and racism and everyday racism
That teachers/trainers/participants practice reactions against any kind of discrimination and racism
That teachers/trainers/participants learn how to teach and discuss these issues to different age groups
That teachers/trainers/participants learn how to create a trusting and safe learning environment
The training programme is more practical than theoretical. The training program demands full participation. The main methods will be through cooperative work, various activities, discussions and practical training practices. The lectures will be short and take place between the activities. A key objective is: learning by doing. All participants have to be able to discuss and present activities in English language.
The outcome of the program will be in the form of sensitized teachers/trainers/participants who can actively master simple cooperative learning methods which train their students social- and intercultural competences. They will have developed lesson plans in order to sensitize their learners on the above-mentioned issues.
On return to their home locations participants will try out the different approaches with their students/pupils/participants and share their experience and material with other participants through e-mail or on an internet platform. The main trainer will also give feedback and counseling after the training session if asked for.
