1. Welcome to E-STAR
Welcome to the E-Star online course! During this course you will learn in depth about invisible racism, its causes and consequences. You will get to know what internalised racism means and also what you can do as bystanders of racism in order not to close your eyes to this social problem and help to build a fair and friendly society for all. In addition, you will learn how to create a safe learning space, understand and manage non-formal education and use different tools to fight invisible racism.
2. How does the Youth-mooc platform work?
A mooc is a massive open online course. There is no limit to the number of participants and you can register at any time. It is completely free and you will receive a certificate at the end.
This course has 5 modules, which you can do at your own pace, although we advise you to do one module per week. It will take you about 2 to 3 hours to complete.
Each module is divided into thematic sessions, and each session has different activities: videos and texts with content and activities and tests to check your knowledge, reflect and work on the topics. Please note that you have to complete each step before you can move on to the next one. The tests can be repeated several times until you pass them.
In addition to that, in some sessions we will pose questions for you to reflect on and interact in the forum with other participants in the forum. This is a very important part that will help you to integrate what you have learnt, make sense of it and also help you to meet other youthworkers from other parts of the world. The team of trainers will keep an eye on the forum to give you feedback and answer any questions you may have.
At the end of some sessions you will find additional materials, links for further research or activities form the manual Seethrough.
If you would like to have more information about invisible racism, we recommend you to download the manual Seethrough. This is a precious tool that will help you in dealing with this topic with your group of young people.
In addition, you can always write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions, technical problems or any other kind of support you may need.
Welcome to the E-Star community and enjoy the journey!
