This workshop will include participatory learning activities and active discussion that draws on participants’ own knowledge and perspectives.

Participants will:

  • Be introduced to and practice rights-based teaching approaches, which include participatory, interactive and experiential learning methods that respect human rights.
  • Design and facilitate a human rights learning activity
  • Learn how human rights education can meet state standard requirements

Workshop content will be tailored to meet the needs and interests of participants. Prior knowledge of human rights is not required.  Certificate of completion from Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights will be awarded.
