In this unique seminar, Re-Imagining Migration Fellows with learn with and from leading scholars of migration and education as well as educational leaders. Participants will engage in blend of instruction, interaction and construction of learning experiences designed to ensure that young people grow up understanding migration as a shared condition of our past, present, and future. We seek to cultivate learning environments that cultivated the knowledge, empathy and mindsets that sustain inclusive and welcoming communities.
The goals for the Summer Fellows seminar are for participants to:
1. Become familiar with the Re-imagining Migration Framework to educate immigrant-origin children, youth, the peers and adults around them to navigate a world shaped by migration.
2. Develop necessary understanding and pedagogical tools to teach about migration as a shared human condition in classrooms, museums and other educational contexts.
3. Begin to design educational inquiry projects to be carried out in your contexts during the academic year 2019-2020 as part of the Re-Imagining Migration Fellowship.
