The HOU’s Postgraduate Program entitled as “Language Education for refugees and migrants” is designed for teachers and graduates who wish to complete or deepen their knowledge and skills of teaching the language lesson in various languages, as well as develop new resources they can later apply to specific contexts and levels. The modules will provide postgraduate students with a strong grounding in theoretical literature as well as appropriate classroom methodology, course design and an introduction to the key research tools. The course’s modules focus on the integration of language, culture, and codes of power as part of the development of formal, informal and non-formal, on-line and off-line educational programs and examine curriculum from a constructivist perspective that recognizes the voices of students, community and teachers as one learning community who inform curriculum and program design. The programme introduces participants to the concepts and basic principles of critical pedagogy; a theory of education that a) gives professionals the opportunity to reflect on their own educational beliefs, practices, and processes and b) gives teachers the voice and tools to reflect upon their teaching methodology vis-a-vis their student’s critical thinking, promotes equality and social justice through action research within the school and community.
The course aims to provide specialized pedagogical knowledge to teachers in both levels of compulsory education (Primary and Secondary) and to Tertiary graduates who plan to teach, as well as to teachers engaged with adult education in refugee or migrant contexts. It trains Greek and international students to pose and answer key questions in applied linguistics and second language acquisition in the world’s numerous, diverse multilingual contexts.
