WORKSHOP: How are we teaching Citizenship? – Inclusion of disadvantaged groups: reality or token?
A workshop by
Irina Bondarevskaya, Irina Ilisei, Khalid Mahmood, Alistair Ross, and Adam Newman Turner, NECE All=In Network (Citizenship Learning for Inclusion and Diversity)
‘All=In’ means tackling the barriers that exclude some learners from high quality citizenship education and celebrating and sharing the best examples of successful inclusive education. Our increasingly ‘hyper-diverse’ communities cannot prosper or claim to be democratic if some people are excluded, endure discrimination or are denied their rights. Please join us for a participatory workshop to test draft materials from our current projects and discuss how you can help improve them:
- Developing professional self-evaluation to improve inclusion for educators;
- Promoting a free video training pack (‘How Are We Teaching Citizenship?’ – find it on You Tube today!); it tackles the assumptions, fears and contradictions for CE teachers in culturally diverse settings
- Creating a training and school improvement resource bank for better inclusion of Roma learners across Europe. Failure to support Roma education is a transnational scandal fuelled by racism. What support and training do schools need?
We welcome teachers, trainers, academics, administrators and policy makers or anyone keen to improve citizenship learning for all ages in both formal and informal settings. If you can’t attend our workshop, please sign up for the All=In Network in the Market Place or one of the ‘Open Space’ sessions and we’ll keep you posted!
