About this course
Developed under the guidance of an expert panel of advisors, authors, and student and staff reviewers, the new edition of the award-winning Consent Matters: Boundaries, Respect, and Positive Intervention course has been updated to provide current, inclusive, and scalable training on sexual consent, communication and relationships, and bystander intervention.
This new edition draws on the latest developments in culture, law, and global best practice to deliver evidence-based training to students, encouraging good communication, clear boundaries, and mutual respect in relationships, as well as exploring ways to support others and make a positive impact in their community.
Consent Matters uses a wide range of interactive multimedia activities, including live polls, animations, and quizzes, to provide up-to-date education on topical areas such as social media and image-based abuse. The realistic scenarios and peer perspectives that feature throughout the course represent the experiences of diverse student communities, providing an inclusive approach to prevention training. The course has been reviewed by a language accessibility advisor to ensure that the course caters to students with English as a second language, along with a glossary of terms and optional support and resource banks.
The course is concise and fully flexible, with a streamlined, modular structure that can be integrated into a blended learning approach to complement existing face-to-face workshops. The course enables institutions to efficiently and cost-effectively scale up training institution-wide and provide a neutral, accessible ‘safe space’ for prevention training.
