This introductory online course focuses on the principles, frameworks and practices of Peace Education. Online Peace Education is available 24 hrs a day to fit your schedule. You can register any time. About Peace Education Online:
- Why should I take part? During Peace Education Online we will cover topics such as conflict resolution, human rights, service learning, cultural understanding, and the intentional structures to create peaceful communities. The main focus is on the practical application and integration of these ideas into learning environments as well as community settings. You will be guided to become more aware of your dreams and passions for peace and with support and feedback from a World Citizen Peace Education facilitator, your dreams and passion will lead to a plan for action.
- How will it work? Participants will learn online on their own time through activities, articles, websites, organizations, practical application with the overall goal of integrating the principles of peace education into their daily practice. The course will take place on our own Moodle learning management system. Participants will need access on a weekly basis to a computer or tablet with internet access, or a smartphone with wifi and/or a data plan.
- How long does it take? You will work through the course on your own time, but we recommend spending about 4 hours per week on the course, which would take 12 weeks.
