Development of Citizenship Competences with Teachers of Law in Lviv Oblast

During February 5-9, Teachers of Law in Lviv Oblast worked on the issues of development of citizenship competences. Trainer Igor Gusakov outlined current educational trends in the field of human rights with a variety of thematic presentations and video materials. In particula, the emphasis was put on the principles of teaching «about», «for» and «through» democracy. In this context, the teachers’ audience was welcomed by the Council of Europe’s handbooks presented in the course of the series «Living in Democracy» by Rolf Gollob and others, which are high-quality and effective didactic tools aimed at strengthening democratic approaches in the Ukrainian educational environment.
