Teaching Migration Through Data and Storytelling

SOAS University of London via FutureLearn

Overview

Help learners understand where, why, and how migration happens

There have been urgent recent calls for curricula to address issues of migration. Yet 78% of British teachers asked by the Runnymede Trust said they needed more support “to equip them to teach migration more sensitively and effectively.”

On this course, teachers can develop their skills to explain where and why migration happens. You’ll learn how to interpret big data sets, examining migration research through video and learning activities.

You’ll also explore creative methods of storytelling, visual arts, and design to humanise migration stories through arts and empathic learning.

This course is designed for teachers educators who want to know how to teach migration using data and storytelling. It would also appeal to anyone learning from home interested in these issues, or educators and learners interested in critical thinking, data skills, independent investigation, and understanding the reliability of sources.

To take part in this course you will need to know how to use google sheets, or to feel confident to download a google sheet and use excel.
