The Teaching Immigration in European Schools (TIES) project develops innovative teaching modules to bring academic knowledge on migration into European classrooms. In close dialogue with teachers, students, and migrants, TIES develops best practice guidelines and ten teaching modules covering different aspects of migration to be taught in classrooms across Europe. The modules are 45-minutes long and use interactive teaching methods such as storytelling and audio-visual methods. These modules will be freely available on the website in six languages and can be taught in different subjects and school types.
The TIES project runs from September 2020 to August 2022. It is funded through a National Geographic Explorer Grant (NGS-64631E-19, 2020-2022) and is hosted by the International Migration Institute at the University of Amsterdam with the German Institute for Global and Area Studies as a cooperation partner.
