Education towards respect and tolerance - from teachers to children
Gender Studies, in collaboration with other experts on education, multiculturalism and human rights, create a training program for primary school teachers. They go through a systematic training process aimed at transferring innovative teaching methods where the individuality of each pupil is taken into account and in an effective and sensitive way social and civic competences of children are developed. These methods will then be used in their teaching practice. Each teacher, after completing the individual training module, trains their colleague. The expert group will also focus on transferring know-how to other teachers in schools through a methodological manual that will further develop the knowledge and experience gained during the training. The methodology will be presented to public at a conference at the end of the project in 2019.
