September 11, 2017 - November 10, 2017$950
3 credits / 9 weeks
11 Sep 2017 – 10 Nov 2017
Professor Heather Kertyzia
This course will explore the content, values and pedagogy of peace education as it is theorized and practiced internationally. Using a Freirean pedagogical perspective, participants will apply the framework of education about, for and by peace to develop a clearer understanding of how peace education might be effectively implemented in their context. The discussion will include both the formal and informal education sectors, with a focus on the ability of education systems to promote either a culture of peace or a culture of violence. Participants will review research from the field to develop an understanding of the difficulties of evaluating peace education programs, and how those challenges can be faced. Course activities will focus on building an effective online learning community where participants learn from each other and challenge their own perspectives through in-depth dialogue and inquiry.
