Experiential Education Research Assignments

The following attachments are for an Experiential Education Research Assignment that has been used by a number of instructors at different universities over a number of years. Instructors have reported that the students have found this assignment to be highly engaging. It provides their students with an opportunity to contribute to an ongoing research project that is helping to build the content for a refugee and forced migration website that can be used by students, instructors, researchers, practitioners, advocates, refugees, and the general public at large. It is an Experiential Education (EE) assignment because it provides students with an opportunity to contribute to the development of our Online Research and Teaching Tools (ORTT) website, while at the same time, students are learning the essentials of refugee and forced migration studies and practice.

We very much look forward to you using this EE assignment and providing your students with an opportunity to contribute to the development of our ORTT&PF website. Please also see our information posters that are found on our Promotional Materials page.

If you have any questions or would like to report on your experience with using this assignment, please contact either Idil Atak, idil.atak@ryerson.ca, and/or James C. Simeon, jcsimeon@yorku.ca.
