The Facing Facts Online courses are built upon CEJI’s pedagogical expertise and offer a unique learning experience to those wishing to expand their knowledge on hate speech, hate crime, and bias indicators.

Innovative learning methods

Our courses are modular and the teaching methods are dynamic and varied. Video presentations, research exercises, ‘in-conversation’ pieces with key practitioners, quizzes, discussion forums, links to resources, practice examples and case studies, all comprise our methodology.

The Facing Facts Online courses are highly practice-focused, ensuring that the knowledge acquired can be easily applied. Through a variety of interactive and dynamic activities, we combine sound theoretical knowledge with expert tips and best practices to provide a well-founded learning experience. The courses contain real-life case studies, providing an opportunity to reflect on current practices and identify areas for improvement.

All our courses aim to equip participants with the knowledge and tools to take action in preventing and countering hate incidents as well as to improve the recognition of such instances.

Facing Facts community

Some of our courses focus on specific target groups, such as civil society organizations, law enforcement agencies or individual activists – but all of them can be taken by anyone who wishes to increase their knowledge on hate incidents raging from hate speech to hate crime.

Participants have the opportunity to network and learn together, creating an online community of fellow-experts. There is a tutor available to provide support and feedback for most of the courses, who also reviews the more qualitative aspects of participants’ progress.

‘Glocal’ approach

The learning experience is customised with information pertaining to specific geographic contexts, such as legislation and referrals to organisational and institutional resources from different countries.

The majority of online courses are currently offered in English, with some of them available in French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, German, Greek, Hungarian and Polish.

Most of our training materials and methods are accessible to users with disabilities.
