ANGEBOT: Facilitators

Certificate in facilitation: Arts-based social inquiry in peace education

Peace Education sets in motion processes of self-reflection and research which range across personal history through to socio-political analysis. The notion of art as research comes from the recognition that such activity makes it possible to explore issues in new ways. While the overt aim may be to produce art, the collateral learning can be at another level. In aesthetic space, whether it be photo-art or a dramatic performance, it is possible to wrestle with situations, which are unclear and paradoxical. Within higher education, the creative arts therefore offer a way thinking, as well as a means to promote broader participation. Active learners become active citizens. The introduction of a transformative pedagogy in higher education, offers an alternative way of researching and interacting. Such a challenge to hierarchical systems of knowledge acquisition is itself a form of civic education. This certificate programme is designed to develop competence in facilitation, by directly experiencing learning within the creative arts, by functioning as a tutor in such a seminar, and then finally by reflecting theoretically upon the experiences.

The curriculum is consists of:

One seminar in the theories and contexts of Peace Education (two credit points)

Two seminars as participant in an arts-based seminar (four credit points)

One seminar as tutor in an arts-based seminar (four credit points)
