The Summer School will bring together early-career scholars, senior researchers and practitioners to critically explore theories and methods, curricula and educational media, the role and training of teachers of Education in Emergencies (EiE), focusing on all educational levels as well as formal and non-formal educational practices.
Theories and Methods of Education in Emergencies
Which theories can render research findings applicable to different contexts? How can we tackle ethical questions such as the Eurocentric perspective on conflicts, humanitarian aid and education in emergencies? Which methods appear promising for research and evaluation of EiE programs or materials?
- The working language of the Summer School will be English. No registration fees apply.
- Accommodation and meals will be provided for all participants, and economy-class travel expenses will be reimbursed.
