TEC International Online Day

MARCH 23, 2022

Resilience, Education and Dealing with Discrimination

TEC International Online Day, this year entitled “Resilience, Education and Dealing with Racial Discrimination” is held annually on the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. It deals with education for tolerance, ties between cultures, educational collaboration and the use of educational models for breaking stigmas and building trust between the different cultures.

This year the study day will focus on the role of “Resilience, Education and Dealing with Racial Discrimination” both in Israeli society and around the world. It is assumed that education for personal resilience and skills for dealing with racism can affect society as a whole. It will be attended by researchers in the field, who will present different perspectives, alongside organizations and educators who will present practices and theories that explain the concept of "pedagogical resilience" from different angles and disciplines and offer ways to use it to contribute to the fight against racism.

This Online Day will host organizations and associations  that have dedicated their time to significant educational activities for social change.  Recent studies will be presented, together with tips on encouraging tolerance and fostering activism.

The conference is intended for pupils, school teachers and principals, college students and educators in higher education institutions, policy makers throughout the educational systems, associations and organizations that work to promote multiculturalism, and guests and lecturers from abroad.

The conference combines theoretical lectures and interactive workshops, thus enabling enrichment and discussion of existing theory in the field and providing a source of inspiration for practical and creative educational activities.

 

Simultaneous translation into English, Arabic and Hebrew will be available.
