Providing a responsible, ethical, and quality-based education already at primary and secondary schools is a way to at least contain the effects of disinformation, level down polarization in societies, and encourage social cohesion. The Faculty of Education opens in the autumn semester 2022 a course entitled Critical Issues in Democratic Citizenship Education (code OVp129) taught by Dr. Elizabeth Anne Washington from University of Florida. Students are encouraged to enroll the course to experience a truly international class led by an American scholar. Students will be working with the concepts of critical pedagogy and will engage in international tasks and discussions on the topic of citizenship, social justice, and others. The course is open to all Masaryk University students and will be beneficial not only for future teachers, but for students of related programs and study fields as well. For more information, see the syllabus of the course.
