DEMO – Developing Modernized Curricula on Immigrants’ Lives in Israel, includes about thirty academic partners from Israeli higher education institutions and fifteen from European Universities. Together we designed twelve academic courses and additional short modules that focus on the lives of migrants and forced migrants. The courses which apply innovative and creative teaching methodologies, have been piloted and are now being taught in Israeli and other European institutions.
The aim of the project was to improve the skills of professionals in applied social sciences (teachers, counselors, social workers, psychologists etc.) so that they can better meet the needs of migrants. To achieve this, we are developing, implementing and disseminating courses on the lives of migrants. By applying advanced teaching methodologies, we encourage a personal and meaningful learning process that enables the students to connect to their own and their families' migration histories. By means of community involved and art-based methodologies, students in DEMO courses document narratives of migrants and study them.
We invite you to promote cooperation with our project and integrate DEMO's teaching materials in your work. For more reading and viewing the contents, please visit:
