- Overall content/structure of the tool (online & printable)

The Teacher Reflection Tool aims to support teachers and other educators to develop their own competences for democratic culture and a “democratic professional ethos”, which builds on the values of democracy, human rights, and intercultural dialogue.
The tool is designed to be used as a companion to self-reflection on teaching and democratic competences.
At the same time, it offers guidance on working with the Council of Europe’s RFCDC on topics including:
- Making children’s and students’ voices heard
- Addressing controversial issues
- Preventing violence and bullying
- Dealing with propaganda, misinformation, and fake news
- Tackling discrimination
