About the Course
This 4-week course provides a basic introduction to the principles, conceptual underpinnings, and creative design of curricula relevant to transformative education, specially GCED in both formal and non-formal contexts. Participants of the course will explore practical ideas for appropriate, effective and creative teaching of GCED-related curricula for all levels of formal schooling, non-formal peace education programmes of government and nongovernment agencies and community organizations. The goal of this course is to provide teachers/participants with the theoretical framework for analyzing, critiquing, and investigating curriculum so that they will be able to design GCED curriculum responsive to their own contexts.
