Peers for Equality – Creative Learning Platform

Τhe project aims to educate young people for embracing gender equality. It proposes a radical shift in how anti-bias education is offered to EU nationals, by switching from the traditional lectures or in-person “trainer to trainee” approach to peer-lead on-line workshops that use drama and digital tools as base for experiential learning. This innovative approach takes advantage of the powerful role drama can have in shaping learning experiences and also of the accessibility and scalability of on-line learning platforms. Together with the peer-lead process, these will increase cognitive load, student engagement and active learning. It also has the advantage of shorter training periods of peer trainers, a more efficient local up-scaling process, having more and long lasting impact, being a more appealing approach and having good potential for a “viral” effect of the attitudes we aim to improve.
