About the course
This online course is an introduction to the theory and practice of peace education and draws upon the experience of Quaker Peace and Social Witness. We will explore how we can support the development of children’s inner peace, help children to understand conflict and their relationship with it, and engage children with wider peace issues, from the ethics of armed drones to conscientious objection and human rights. We will endeavour to establish a supportive learning community and encourage reflective practice and peer learning and assessment.
This course is aimed at educators interested in learning the principles and practice of peace education. It is a total of 12-15 hours of flexible learning with two webinars which are recorded for play back.
