27th EUROCLIO Annual Conference and Professional Development and Training Course

Controversy and Disagreement in the classroom

The EUROCLIO Annual Conference is a unique professional development course which has been addressing these learning outcomes for over two decades. The conference targets history, geography, heritage, and citizenship educators and education professionals from Serbia, Europe, and the world.

In our world today, young people are increasingly influenced by social media and the information found on the internet. This exposes them to different extremist ideologies and alternative facts. Teachers are often confronted with radical views and expected to deal with them. During the 27th EUROCLIO Annual Conference, educators will discuss on how to constructively debate different views on sensitive topics. Want to learn more?
