Transformative Pedagogy for Peace-building: A Guide for Teachers

“This guide is designed to build the capacity of teachers so that they are informed and empowered in why and how to educate for peace-building. It offers an analysis of conflict, examines the role of ethics, expands on the elements of transformative pedagogy and provides practical tools to assess learners’ understanding of peacebuilding concepts and skills. It concludes with 20 engaging activities to support experiential learning.

 

Transformative pedagogy empowers both teachers and learners. It encourages learners to be reflective and critical thinkers who are able to contribute meaningfully as members of local and global communities. It also redefines role of teachers. Teachers become facilitators with the disposition, knowledge, skills and commitment to support students to develop their full potential as peace-builders.”
