The course encompasses a 6-week period. Participants are expected to engage in approximately 30 hours of active learning through readings, videos, discussions, group-work/role-plays and quizzes.
The course is articulated in three modules:
Module 1 focuses on international and regional definitions and frameworks concerning Human Rights Education (HRE). Attention is devoted not only to the international and regional standards that are the core content of HRE but also to its goals, principles and main actors.
Module 2 is dedicated to more specific contexts and issues covering a number of areas (such as disability rights and migration) as well as aspects related to inclusive education (such as for instance inclusion of minorities or the preventative role of inclusive education against violence and extremism).
Module 3 deals with the principles of the whole school and a rights-based approach to education. In particular, it stresses the importance of participatory management of the school community, which involves addressing the needs of learners, education personnel and the wider community, not only within the curriculum, but across the whole-school and learning environment.
