Teaching Academy Webinars
Teachers across the country are challenged daily by questions about the war in Ukraine, democracy in crises, human rights and elections. Pupils in Danish schools are influenced by news and media images, and they ask interested and concerned questions. What would your students like to know about these issues? And what would you, as a teacher, like to know more about in order to answer their questions? Watch our webinars designed especially for teachers. (The webinars are in Danish).
