Faculty of Law

University of New South Wales

Wednesday, 17 February 2016



Deadline: 12 December 2015

Send to: Andrew.byrnes@unsw.edu.au


We invite colleagues working on human rights in any discipline to submit expressions of interest to present at the 6th Annual Human Rights Tertiary Teachers' Workshop, which will be held at the Faculty of Law, University of New South Wales on Wednesday 17 February 2016, from 9:30 am – 4.30 pm. The workshop will be hosted by the Australian Human Rights Centre at UNSW. 


We are keen to receive proposals that focus not only on the substance of what we teach, but especially on how we go about teaching human rights, with an emphasis on new and effective ways of addressing new (and old) issues.


The organising committee would particularly welcome expressions of interest on the following themes:


  • Critiques of human rights – recent critiques of the human rights enterprise and how we engage with these in our teaching
  • Supervising human rights research students (in particular higher degree research students) – challenges, pitfalls and opportunities, and issues specific to human rights research
  • Social media and the teaching/learning of human rights – should we use it? Why (not)? IF so, how?
  • New resources/new ways of teaching – eg, judgment projects as a means of teaching human rights, lessons from experiential learning/clinical teaching, effective simulations and innovative assessment
  • New or breaking issues and how we go about engaging with them in our teaching/Recent human rights events (eg Australia’s UPR) and using them for human rights teaching.


Please send your expression of interest to Andrew.Byrnes@unsw.edu.au by 12 December 2015.
