Forum Discussion Board
The Forum Discussion Board is a moderated, private space for Forum Members to share information, ask questions of Forum Members, post comments, and generally engage in discussion relating to teaching business and human rights.

Syllabi Bank
The Forum maintains a password protected Syllabi Bank for business and human rights courses or modules taught by Forum members.

To access the Syllabi Bank, a member must first submit a syllabus for a business and human rights course or module that they have taught or plan to teach. Syllabi should be sent to Joanne Bauer or Anthony Ewing, and identify any co-authors or co-teachers. Individuals submitting a syllabus will receive a passcode to access the Syllabi Bank when their syllabus is posted.

To replace or remove a syllabus, or with questions about the passcode, contact Ellie Windham.


Handbook Project
The Teaching Business and Human Rights Handbook Project is a collective effort of the Teaching Business and Human Rights Forum. The Handbook Project grew out of the fourth annual Teaching Business and Human Rights Workshop (May 2014) and is intended to advance business and human rights education by providing teachers an online resource the can use to supplement what they already teach or to help introduce new topics in their courses.

Distinct from a casebook, textbook, or edited volume, the primary audience for the Handbook Project is individuals teaching or planning to teach the subject. The Handbook Project features topical modules following a common template. It will be expanded gradually and updated periodically.
