Introducing our “Research Meets School” Project
Dear teachers and educators in Berlin – we have something exciting for you and your students aged 15 to 18: The project “Forschung trifft Schule – Neue Perspektiven auf Migration und Integration” (Research meets school – new perspectives on migration and integration).
The project aims to broaden and strengthen students’ understanding of current migration and diversity issues through workshops and digital storytelling. It is a great opportunity to facilitate nuanced discussions on migration and integration, to make expertise from migration and integration research accessible, and to exchange perspectives with experts and people with lived experience.
The interactive workshop concept will consist of a screening of Migration Matters videos, facilitated discussion, and accompanying activities, and will be developed in consultation with the participating teachers. The workshops must take place by the end of 2023 and will last approximately 4 hours each. They are flexible and can take place as part of a project day or as part of a normal lesson.
If you are interested in participating with your students, we have prepared a simple survey (in German) for you. Simply complete it to express your interest and we will get back to you: bit.ly/ForschungTrifftSchuleUmfrage
If you don’t speak German and/or work at an international school in Berlin and would be interested in having a workshop in English, feel free to reach out to us at team[at]migrationmatters.me with the subject line “Forschung trifft Schule – English workshop”.
The project is supported by the Friends of the WZB (Social Science Center Berlin) as part of the project “WZB Wirkt” and by the Landeszentrale für politische Bildung (LPB).
