Deadline: 25 May 2013
Open to: young NGO workers with some previous experience in using the virtual social space
Venue: 12-15 November 2013 at the European Youth Centre of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France
The first time cooperation between the European Youth Foundation and the Pestalozzi Programme will take the form of a training bringing together participants from the youth sector, the adult education sector and the teacher training area from 12-15 November 2013 at the European Youth Centre of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France.
This training will deal with the following issue: “Respect – Responsible attitudes and behaviour in the virtual social space”. Complementing the Council of Europe’s flagship programme “Young People Combating Hate Speech Online” running between 2012 – 2014, it will focus on the role education -formal/informal- can play in developing responsible attitudes and behaviours in the virtual social space. At the end of the course participants will be better equipped to take action to counter irresponsible behaviour, raise awareness and educate others on the importance of responsible behaviour, while being themselves examples of good practice.
Therefore, the EYF is looking for 15 participants from the youth sector to take part in the “Respect – Responsible attitudes and behaviour in the virtual social space” training!
All travel and subsistence costs will be covered by the Council of Europe and participants will be reimbursed (on presentation of the relevant receipts) according to Council of Europe rules.
If you are interested in the topic and you have some previous experience in using the virtual social space, while having carried out/supported activities with your NGO – this invitation is for you!
After the training course the participants will be in better position to promote respectful attitudes and behaviour in the virtual social space; in particular they will be better equipped to:
include training for responsible social behaviour in their teaching and training
The participants will form a network of education professionals (formal and nonformal) equipped to continue the training on the international, national, regional and local level with a shared view of the competences which need to be developed and of the appropriate methodology of training and teaching. A collection of tried and tested training resources will be available online to serve as pedagogical support in teacher training and as a stimulation to further develop resources along similar lines.
