Instructional Methods

Many methods have been used to develop instructional materials for learning about human rights. One purpose of this website is to increase the quantity and improve the quality of instructional materials available on the right to communicate.

Human Rights procedures

Human Rights present a number of challenges in terms of instructional methods. Human Rights education requires an approach to instruction that is wider in scope and larger in scale than most educational programs currently provide. The resources gathered here can both provide such a larger perspective and link to other resources that do so as well.

Human Rights Resource Center

The Human Rights Resource Center is maintained by the University of Minnesota. Its main goal is to make 'excellent Human Rights produced by non-profit organizations and independent publishers accessible to all.'

This website groups its materials under the broad categories of Human Rights resources, Training and Field Opportunities, and Advocacy Networks. In each of these categories, one will find materials helpful in developing an outline into instructional material on the right to communicate.
