CO-DESIGNING EDUCATION WITH REFUGEES
The Jamiya Project is developing a process of working with students to co-design preparatory courses a. Working with students on how courses are delivered and what the aims are can make design and content more relevant to the local context. It also helps to develop student skills that are relevant to adapting to higher education.
We are also working with students to co-create material to support adaptation to higher education. 5000 students were awarded campus-based scholarships in 2016, yet many Syrians face common academic, social and practical challenges. So the Jamiya Project is working with Syrians students to develop tools that support academic and social side of a student's journey to allow students to share and exchange their knowledge as a community despite their displacement.
