IZB develops and implements a systematic in-service programme in pedagogical approaches for Education Humanitarian Principles and values for teachers and education specialists

In cooperation with IFRC and other education partners, funded by the Humanitarian Aid division of Swiss Development Cooperation, IZB implemented the MAS (Master of Advanced Studies) in Pedagogical Approaches for Education in Humanitarian Principles and Values. The MAS was a two-year part-time study programme for professionals. The programme began in January 2018 and ended in December 2019.

The school project «Project Humanity» serves as an example to teach education specialists and humanitarian aid workers how to sensitise youth and adults for humanitarian concerns, to promote opinion building and to empower them to take action.

The MAS was designed in a blended learning mode. During the two-year’s programme the students met twice for a week of face-to-face immersion. Bi-weekly, they followed a webinar online and completed tasks in self-study and in study-groups. The face-to-face trainings were held in cooperation with partner universities in Belarus Belarusian State Pedagogical University and in Hong Kong Education University of Hong Kong EdUHK.

A second edition of the study programme is currently in the development phase. The start of the new Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) in “Pedagogical Approaches in Education in Humanitarian Principles and Values” is planned to start in May 2021. >> Learn more!
