    Quand la haine fait les grandes titres : la gestion des discussions complexes et délicates en classe

    En cette époque de tensions sociales et politiques significatives, l’un des plus grands défis auxquels font face les éducateurs est de savoir comment gérer les discussions portant sur l’appartenance ethnique, religieuse et sexuelle. Les enjeux identitaires, auxquels les éducateurs comme leurs élèves sont confrontés, sont au cœur de ces discussions. Dans le cadre de ce webinaire, nous déterminerons les balises nécessaires pour engager une discussion rigoureuse, nuancée et inclusive sur les enjeux épineux de notre temps.
