Both weeks will be practical and through engagement with teaching approaches (e.g., ethical dilemmas, P4C)and on-line resources,will build teachers’ capacity and confidence in this area. In week one, we will also explore our ethical practice in the classroom.
Week two of this two-part ethics webinar for primary and post-primary teachers will support teachers in discussing more controversial ethical issues with children and young people. It will explore the preparation required in advance of these lessons, particularly how to create a safe learning environment and prepare children and young people to discuss topics that can be emotive or difficult for some children. Similar to the first week, it will be practical and through engagement with teaching approaches and on-line resources, will build teachers’ capacity and confidence in this area. It will also explore the importance of ethical relationships between all members of the school community.
