Title & Reference code
Feel like a migrant
Feel like a migrant
In the classic novel,   To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus Finch says to his daughter Scout:
"If you can learn   a simple trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks.   You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point   of view--until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." - Harper Lee, (1960). To   Kill a Mockingbird

How well can we walk in   someone else’s shoes, to see something from someone else’s perspective?
Our project partnership   aims to develop innovative methods for workshop participants to experience   what it feels like to be a migrant , hence the title “feel like a migrant” and thereby   enhance their empathy in their daily contact with migrants.
The project is a   migrant integration project targeted at teachers, trainers and other   educational staff who in everyday working life have a personal contact with   migrants.
Our project is aimed at   developing and implementing the concept of a multicultural teaching approach   as a new strategy and method in teaching, through realisation of workshops   for trainers, teachers and other educational staff.
Key words
Education,   empathy, multicultural teaching
