07 SES 17 A, Education for Democratic Intercultural Citizenship
Teaching values and citizenship education becomes increasingly important in many countries all over our globalizing world. For teachers, curriculum developers and researchers it is important to learn more about possibilities to address moral values and citizenship in education. Therefore, this module focuses on knowledge of internationally different theoretical approaches, policies and practices of citizenship education. It builds on the recent study on how all twenty-eight EU Member States pay attention to democracy and tolerance in educational policy and practice (Veugelers, De Groot & Stolk, 2017). The module is theoretical, comparative and practice-oriented and will help students in inquiring, designing and evaluating practices of citizenship education. It will have an interdisciplinary approach that not only includes educational theory, but also includes psychological elements like engagement and sociological variables such as social class, gender, religion and ethnicity. The module is practice-oriented and has a strong link with society: visiting schools and NGO’s. A non-Western perspective of the module will be included by Skype meetings with scholars outside Europe and the Western world (Latin America, Africa, Asia) about their theories and practices. The central part of the module is a week full-time at the University of Humanistic Studies Utrecht (January 29 – February 2). In the paper we will present the theoretical foundation of the module, the teaching methodology, concrete learning activities in particular outside the university, and the first experiences in the pilot and the evaluation by the students. Additionally we will show how this module was integrated in the Intensive Programme and what the plans are for next year.
