Human Rights Education Symposium (HRES) on the topic “Educational Materials of Human Rights Education” held in Luzerne April 28, 2012
The HRES aims at serving as a platform for practice-oriented exchange and reflection regarding central issues in the fast developing field of Human Rights Education. The Symposium's focus on teaching and learning material mirrored a need to stake stock, communicate about functions and uses of materials as well to communicate about standards and evaluation. In plenary sessions and workshops, these questions were discussed, often related to the presentation of concrete projects and the materials developed and applied by them. EWC member Claudia Lenz held a workshop on the Intercultual Glossary Project (see attached presentation).
The one-day symposium, attended by about 200 participants can be regarded as a successful innovation, it served as an important platform for discussion and networking for HRE experts as well as students and educators from a variety of countries.
