The UNESCO International Institute for Capacity-Building in Africa (IICBA) invites you in a series of four webinars, every Wednesday in May, on how transformational pedagogy and promotion of ethical reflection can help teachers during Covid-19 for resilience and prevention of violent extremism through education.

As close to 90% of the world’s schoolchildren are not attending school at present. While partial or total confinement is the norm in many countries, the risk of violence at home is increased by several factors, such as higher levels of stress, school and business closures, loss of income and economic vulnerability, family confinement, isolation and loss of access to support systems.

Teachers are now called, more than ever, to reinvent how learning takes place and ensure that it reaches children in inclusive, meaningful and quality ways, addressing not only the curricular areas but also the emotional and mental stress and uncertainty that children struggle with these days and that influence how learning occurs.

How can teachers be prepared to respond to the challenges of child protection and to empower children for a changing world?

How can teachers help re-invent learning and use online tools to engage children in meaningful educational activities?

And how can teachers support parents to engage and learn with their children while at home?

Transformative Pedagogy can support teachers to conduct child-centred learning that helps empowering children to reflect critically about their reality, become aware of their individual and collective responsibilities, empathize with others, and are equipped to positively respond locally in a global context.

Transformative pedagogy provides support to reflect on the contextual issues that children are facing and helps building safe learning environments for dialogue and sharing around those issues.

Based on the Transformative Pedagogy approach to Peace, Resilience Building and Prevention of Violent Extremism, educators will be introduced to how fostering ethical reflections and using transformative pedagogy and can help protect, support and empower learners during these challenging times.

Fostering ethical reflections during the COVID-19 pandemic becomes essential to reflect on the ethical responsibilities and implications for children and youth in the global pandemic. During these times, it is fundamental to reflect on the implications of the global pandemic on the education systems and focus on fostering ethical reflections in young people about their responsibilities as global citizens and in their relations with one another so as to prevent violence.

Join the online meetings on Wednesdays 13, 20, 27 May, and 3 June 2020, from 13:00 to 14:30 GMT.
