COURSE FOR TEACHERS: TEACHING HUMAN RIGHTS

XIV Edition


Recognized by the Ministry of Education, the University and Research

The teaching and education of human rights in school, along side traditional educational activities, are of primary importance to young people. From this is born "Teaching Human Rights" which aims to offer, through the analysis of international instruments, practical responses in terms of content and methods to guide knowledge into action, and thus put all teachers at the level of new educational goals.

The Course aims at promoting the dissemination of the culture of human rights, encouraging:
• the acquisition of skills necessary for the development of educational initiatives and programs centered on the education of human rights;
• the advancement of knowledge of the main international instruments that protect human rights, the role and specific activities of the United Nations and other international organizations working in the field;
• the comparison between the different experiments already implemented and their disclosure, in establishing an initial reflection on the prospects and potential for human rights education;
• the transmission of the tools for educating children and teenagers to defend their rights and those of others;
• developing awareness that human rights education is not just about teaching human rights, but also to promote them.

The course, organized by SIOI in agreement with the Office for the Support to the United Nations of the Town of Assisi, is recognized by the Ministry of Education, the University and Research - Department of Education - Directorate General for the Personnel of Schools. It is addressed to the heads of institutes and to teachers from all levels throughout the country.
