The specific objectives of the project are:
- To promote innovative practices in school education in the field of Ethical Education through methodologies and pedagogies which support students’ social, civic and intercultural competencies through an online interactive course;
- To build the confidence of teachers to examine ethical issues in their own subject areas through guidance on how to develop teacher and student created ethical education content;
- To raise awareness of Ethical Education amongst politicians and policy makers as an inclusive approach to education for pluralist democracies as part of ET2020 in the lead up to the 2019 European elections.
The strategic partnership facilitates learning across the project partners but will also facilitate transnational dialogue by teachers on Ethical education by sharing teachers’ practical experiences of teaching Ethical Education in European classrooms online and at the teaching and learning events. The project positions Ethical Education as an emerging education that has a real potential for affecting societal change.
