|Purple Certificate Program - 2008|
The second cycle of the Purple Certificate Program took place at Sabanci University Campus between 30 June-4 July 2008. At the end of the program, 51 participants from 6 project cities ( Izmir, Kars, Nevsehir, Trabzon, Van, Sanliurfa) were given Purple Certificates.
A total of 284 applications for Purple Certificate Program were evaluated by a group of Sabanci University faculty members and 51 teachers were invited to attend the program.
The content of the 2nd Purple Certificate Program was designed by a total of 32 education teams which include the Sabanci University faculty members and academicians from project cities. This year’s curriculum has been enriched through an evaluation of feedback from last year. Along with modules from last year, new modules that interest teachers were added to the program. Different education techniques such as workshops, panels, film projections, presentations and round table discussions were used during the 2nd Purple Certificate Program.
51 high school teachers who attended the 2008 Purple Certificate Program now integrate higher gender awareness in their private lives as well as their teaching techniques. Furthermore, an e-group has been established so that teachers can share ideas, reflections and experiences.
