Online Course on Comprehensive Sexuality Education for Teachers and Educators

Adapted from TARSHI’s publication, ‘The Orange Book’ that was developed in 2010, this online course is specifically for teachers and educationists and aims to fill the gap created by the lack of teacher training on Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE). When working with teachers and educators, we are aware that they often find it difficult to become sexuality educators given that they have limited scope to explore their own doubts and feelings about gender, sex, sexuality, and get few opportunities to learn how to address these issues in a matter-of-fact manner. This eLearning course seeks to equip professionals with skills to engage with sexual and reproductive health issues within a school setting, with confidence and ease.

The course covers various concepts such as CSE, sexuality, gender, and topics related to body image, technology and its influence on young people, harassment of teachers and students, to name a few.  It also provides a space for self-reflection and values clarification. Each chapter has exercises that cover basic concepts along with more complex issues and require participants to reflect upon related issues from their work place and professional experience.

The course is offered in the following modes:

Moderated mode

The traditional classroom setting has been adapted for the online space. This type of course provides an opportunity for participants to receive support from facilitators via discussion forums (in Facebook groups), sharing of supplementary resources such as articles and videos.
