The Teachers Without Borders Peace Education Program supports educators in their personal and professional development and connects them with like-minded colleagues from around the world through a supportive virtual learning environment. Through this 3-part course, educators will develop the knowledge and skills to put peace education into practice in their own context. Additionally, participants will engage in self-reflection on their role as peacemakers in their communities. The course consists of three 4-week modules that cover the theory, scope and practice of peace education. In Module 2, the Scope of Peace Education, participants explore the various fields that are encompassed by the broader umbrella of peace education. Our study includes the key theories, knowledge, values, and skills of each field, as well as numerous sample lessons which serve as guides and inspiration for the development of your own activities. The coursework consists of weekly readings, videos, discussion forums and assignments.
