Peace Education Special Interest Group at UCL Blog Launch
Welcome to our readers interested and inspired, motivated and hopeful to learn, share, develop, and grow in the subject of Peace Education. The Peace Education Special Interest Group has been set up by Hans Svennevig and Alexis Stones subject leaders of PGCEs (Initial Teacher Education) in Citizenship education and Religious Education respectively. We have been able to form this group with support from Professor Nicola Walshe Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment Head of Department whom we thank.
This blog will be the mouthpiece of activities and announcements, reflections and considerations related to the special interest group including events and opportunities for collaboration, to hear from Peace Education activists, students, teachers and academics. We invite you to get in touch with us if you would like to contribute to the special interest group or have an idea or activity that you would like to share to further peace education at every level of UCL. We will update this blog frequently – with the next edition to examine some of the themes around peace education and how it can be incorporated in teaching at every level. Later in the summer we hope to have an event to bring peace educators together and consider a longer term strategy and vision for the special interest group.
We are looking forward to working with the UCL community and see Peace Education as a core component of the overall long term vision and strategy of UCL.
