Peace and Nonviolence Education in Schools

September 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

In response to the growing awareness of the need for more widespread peace education at all levels, we started with a vision, within our own immediate context, ‘that students and educators in all Christian schools in Australia and New Zealand, of any denomination, will be able to learn about, experience and be invited to live a Christ-shaped theology and practice of peace and nonviolence’.  Building on this vision, our intention is to grow a network of Peace Educators in the region. This session will outline the work that we have been involved in thus far, focusing on:

  • inspiration for our initial vision;
  • creating a dream-sharing group;
  • developing and trialling prototype curriculum units within our existing ‘circles of influence’;
  • recruiting educators to trial the units;
  • providing professional learning programs;
  • collating student and teacher feedback;
  • expanding and sustaining our network.

 

This session will be hosted by 

Brendan McKeague and Michael Wood
