The North-South Centre of the Council of Europe, in collaboration with the AKDN-Aga Khan Development Network, KAICIID-Dialogue Centre, United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and Universidad Católica de Valencia – European Institute of Education for Democratic Culture (ECUDEM-UCV) launch a Tutored Online Training Course on ‘Global Education and Intercultural/Interfaith Dialogue,’ to take place from the 18th of September to the 15th of October 2023.
Part of the iLEGEND III project, the training course aims at providing participants with new skills and competences on Global Education, Intercultural/Interfaith Dialogue and Human Rights.
It targets education practitioners in the formal and non-formal sector, media professionals and members of Civil Society Organisations and Faith-Based Organisations to:
- reflect on Global Education, its concept, principles, and methodology;
- analyse relevant notions related to Intercultural/Interfaith Dialogue, such as culture, discrimination, racism, majority/minority, inclusion/exclusion, etc;
- develop specific competences focused on defusing and recognising potential conflicts, and actively promoting a culture of peace and non-violence;
- promote networking among participants involved in global awareness-raising or educational actions.
The conceptual and methodological framework of the course is based on the Global Education Guidelines. Grounded on a non-formal learning approach, work methods will include different types of supports, activities and exercises that facilitate individual and collective learning processes.
The training course is fully online, hosted on HELP CoE e-learning platform. Two tutors will accompany participants during the 4-week activity. The expected workload is approximately 25 hours in total. The activity programme is structured in 4 modules (one module per week). The training course will be mainly asynchronous: this means that each participant will learn on their own schedule and pace, completing activities and exercises. At the end of the training, participants will obtain a certificate of participation.
30 participants will be selected for this activity that will be held in English. This activity is open to citizens of the 46 Council of Europe Member States plus Algeria, Cabo Verde, Morocco and Tunisia (North-South Centre Member States). A quota is available for citizens from other countries.
The Council of Europe welcomes applications from all candidates who fulfil the specific profile of the activities, irrespective of gender, disability, marital or parental status, racial, ethnic or social origin, colour, religion, belief or sexual orientation.
Please note that due to the large number of applications only the selected candidates will be contacted. Individual requests and follow up questions will not be addressed, unless considered as assistance to the application process. The selection results will be announced on the 18th of July 2023. After the communication of the selection results, the selected participants must confirm their participation to the North-South Centre; if not, they will be replaced by shortlisted candidates.
The activity is fully free of charge.
