Free online course about conflict resolution, mediation, peer support, as well as strategies for improving the school and classroom climate, from 5 October to 9 November.
from the post by Anneke Van Hoek on the LinkedIn group on restorative justice, justice and reconciliation:
The course will be moderated by Helen Cowie and Pat Colliety from the University of Surrey (United Kingdom). It is free of charge and will take place online using the resources of the teachers' course from the EU-funded project VISTOP project (http://vistop.org/).
Participants are expected to read the course materials throughout each week in their own time. The group of students will meet "face-to-face" each week for synchronous meetings at the virtual Anti-Violence-Campus in the virtual world of Second Life to engage in the topic for that week.
Expected time involvement: 30 hours in total.
There is also an option for participants to register with the University of Surrey and gain academic credit for this course.
To register for the course please contact Helen Cowie (H.Cowie@surrey.ac.uk) or Pat Colliety (P.Colliety@surrey.ac.uk).
