Teaching for Refugees: Building Knowledge (Self-Paced)

The Teaching for Refugees: Building Knowledge course is the first in a series of three courses UNHCR aims to develop to support educators working with students of refugee and migrant backgrounds. This course seeks to expand awareness, deepen understanding, and develop resources that will be useful in the classroom to cultivate harmony and belonging as part of larger efforts to welcome and fully integrate newcomers into our communities.

Teaching for Refugees: Building Knowledge builds upon the Teaching about Refugees Toolkit available on this UNHCR website. This particular course targets educators within Europe (although it is open to educators everywhere).

Please note: This is a fully self-paced, unmoderated version of the course. If you are interested in joining a cohort within a facilitated learning community, please contact Frederik Smets, UNHCR Education Officer, at smets@unhcr.org or Julie Kasper, Refugee Educator Academy Program Manager, at jkasper@ceinternational1892.org.
