Peace Education Manual. Lesson plans for Peace Clubs

This Peace Education Manual has been developed in collaboration with Finn Church Aid (FCA) Uganda, local partner Uganda Muslim Youth Development Forum (UMYDF) and Teachers Without Borders (TWB) Network Finland.

The manual was developed to strengthen the pedagogical and methodological quality of local peace clubs during the spring and summer of 2022. The contents of the manual were successfully piloted with more than 480 young people in eight lower secondary school peace clubs established and run by UMYDF with the support of FCA in Uganda. Two of the peace clubs are located in the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement, one of the largest refugee settlements in the world.

The material consists of 34 lessons plans and is primarily aimed for young people. The different sections and activities of the material can be used flexibly in training, clubs, or, for example, as individual lessons on peace building, socio-emotional skills, conflict resolution or cooperation skills. The exercises are functional, learner-centered and emphasize active participation of youth. The material is adaptable for use anywhere in the world.

FCA and UMYDF have been working together since 2016 in Uganda to promote the positive role of youth in conflict prevention and peacebuilding. In our work, peace education is defined as a holistic, multidisciplinary and transformative process that seeks to develop capacities that promote non-violent conflict resolution, respect for human rights and active participation.

Teachers’ self-efficacy in preventing and intervening in school bullying: a systematic review

This article presents a systematic review of existing literature on the extent of teachers’ self-efficacy in managing bullying and its connection to the likelihood that teachers will intervene in bullying, to their intervention strategies, and the prevention measures they employ, as well as students’ bullying behavior and their experiences of victimization.

The study presents practical implications in relation to teacher initial education and professional development: teachers with higher self-efficacy tend to intervene more often in bullying situations, so it's important that teacher training programs are designed to support teacher's self-efficacy, through the use of appropriate methods, such as the use of role-play to practice specific professional behaviours.
