TEACHERS CLOSE TO BORDERS

About Project

 

The project “Teachers Close to Borders: Uncovering Teachers’ Practices as they Work to Enact Equitable Teaching with Refugee Children” aims to understand the perspectives and practices of a small group of highly engaged teachers, previously identified in earlier research project GÖÇ-MAT, as holding potentials to enact equitable teaching practices in their work with refugee children and families. The project is funded by TÜBİTAK 2236 European Commission Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Cofund program “Co-Funded Brain Circulation2 Scheme (CoCirculation2)”.

 

This ethnographically oriented research includes data collection methods such as fieldwork, classroom observations, video recordings, and interviews. During the course of the project, teachers will be provided PD opportunities on topics such as culturally responsive education and gender issues in refugee education.

 

The project will be carried out between 2021 and 2023. Currently, the data collection process continues. This website will be updated as the project progresses.
