During Covid-19 pandemic, the University of Manchester and Caritas Salford collaborated on a research project funded by the ESRC Impact Accelerator Account that explored how teachers adapted to the realities and challenges of teaching refugees online during this period.
This workshop will outline the key findings and teacher tool kit developed for teaching refugees online, many of whom had low digital literacy levels and lack of access to technology. The workshop will be relevant to both academics and ESOL practitioners looking to better understand the challenges and strategies that can be employed in online education for refugees.
Where: The workshop will be entirely online.

Date: 18th June, Friday
