This event will explore innovative curricula/training plans from two perspectives. Firstly, we will look at how judicial education bodies can approach securing the approval for and setting of sensitive or challenging educational topics as part of an innovative curriculum. Secondly, we will look at innovation in the learning design of such sensitive or challenging topics. The theme of the event will be equal treatment. Learning around these issues poses challenges that are faced by all jurisdictions at this time, this also being the theme of IOJT 2022 Conference which is ‘Effective Judicial Education: Understanding Vulnerable Populations’. At the EJTN event, judicial and educational leads across member states and the UK will: learn how other jurisdictions have approached the identification of the need for education in sensitive or challenging areas; see how other jurisdictions have approached the innovative design of such programmes to maximise outcomes in important areas of public interest; and learn from each other’s challenges at a national level through discussion groups. There will also be a substantive educational session on unconscious bias, the understanding of which can support the development of innovative approaches to learning on equal treatment matters. Finally, there will also be an opportunity to refer back to and build on the Lot 1 ‘Study on Best Practices in training of judges and prosecutors’.
