On 10th November 2023, the Teachers’ Training Event “Educazione alla cittadinanza: come insegnare la materia?”, in the framework of the project CITIZED – Policy Implementation support and teacher empowerment for Citizenship Education took place in Reggio Emilia.
The event was organised on the occasion of the series of open meetings on citizenship “Identità e Cittadinanza… Una via da seguire” and the inauguration of the exhibition on Identity and Citizenship organised by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and the Municipality of Reggio Emilia.
The event was an occasion for teachers and teachers in training to learn more about the situation of Citizenship Education in Italy and in Europe, and to present the course for teachers and future teachers ‘Educating for citizenship: bullying and cyberbullying, gender equality, diversity, inclusion and freedom of expression’. The course was developed within the framework of the CITIZED project, as a training course on Citizenship Education focusing on four specific topics: bullying and cyberbullying, gender equality, diversity, inclusion and freedom of expression. In order for the course to be better explained, the audience was invited to participate in some activities, extracted by the course itself, which also represented an occasion of discussion and exchange between the more experienced teachers and the teachers to be.
