Conflict Resolution and the role of teachers in future global citizens’ education

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
The 2018 EU Council Recommendation on key competences for lifelong learning is a reference tool for education and training. Among the eight key competences essential to citizens for personal fulfilment, a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, employability, active citizenship and social inclusion, we’ll focus on the Citizenship competence, the ability to act as responsible citizens and to fully participate in civic and social life, based on understanding of social, economic, legal and political concepts.
Among the transversal competences, Interpersonal skills could be considered the main complement of the former one, more specifically talking about interpersonal communication, dialogue, mediation and conflict resolution from macro to micro frameworks.
The course will offer a package of resources for the positive management of conflicts that arise within the school environment, but also general conflicts in the society up to international ones, on which the School has a duty to intervene with innovative cognitive approaches.

Learning outcomes:

  • To know the preconditions of a conflict and the types and dynamics
  • To acquire the tools to treat conflict management, solution and transformation in a distinguished way
  • To apply innovative approaches to conflict management in class dynamics
  • To develop communication tools and active listening to read conflict dynamics in the classroom
  • To recognize the role of social skills in teaching
  • To acquire new confidence in managing conflict situations using the knowledge they have gained.
