This course has been developed by the Anne Frank House in close collaboration with the School Education Gateway:

  • It will enhance your skills as an inclusive educator, able to discuss sensitive and complex topics with your students. The focus will be on helping students be aware of the need to respond to antigypsyism, antisemitism, discrimination of LGTB+ and Muslims, and racism.
  • You will get to know the Visible Thinking and Blended Learning methods, and understand how to create ‘safe space’ by using some of the modules of the Stories that Move Toolbox against discrimination.
  • The course prepares you to develop your own lesson plan and requires that you assess two lesson plans of your peers. A special focus will be put on international student exchange programmes.

You can follow the course at your own pace. The only deadline you need to pay attention to is for the final peer assessment assignment. The language of communication is English.
