On-line: Sensitisation: Solidarity through information

Can we do something against prejudice, discrimination, and racism? The first step is always to get informed.

 ICI offers a short on-line Awareness Training about Culture, Diversity, Discrimination, Racism and Everyday discrimination/racism.

Participants: Everyone interested in the topic. Especially useful for teachers and trainers who could use similar approaches with their students as a preparation for a more   in depth approach in the classroom or workplace.

Place: The course takes place on-line on Zoom.

Time: In cooperation with interested groups (at least 10 participants) we decide the time; 3 times 3 hours on Zoom.


That teachers/trainers/participants become aware and sensitive about issues such as interculturalism, diversity, stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination and racism and everyday racism
That teachers/trainers/participants have thought about reactions towards discrimination and racism
That teachers/trainers/participants have practiced discussing the important topics on-line and get ideas for their own teaching/training

Methods: The course consists of interactive lectures, pair and group work and presentations. Even on line – it will be active and cooperative.

Preparation: All participants must ensure that they have Zoom installed on their computers with speakers, microphone and camera functioning. They must send payment via bank transfer to the ICI account and a receipt of payment to Guðrún (gudrun@ici.is) They will then receive a receipt from ICI if they wish.
