1 Invitation til konference Mod bedre undervisningsmetoder om den arabiske verden Konference for undervisere på ungdomsuddannelserne Tilmelding: FORMÅL: Konferencen sigter mod at klæde undervisere bedre på til at kunne undervise i situationen i MENA-området (Mellemøsten og Nordafrika). Den sidste tids omskiftelighed i regionen har betydet omvæltninger i vores måde at forstå og tolke den arabiske verden på og udfordrer derfor også mulighederne for at undervise om regionen på en måde, der yder kulturen og befolkningen retfærdighed. Dette kræver viden og indsigt i, hvad vi har med at gøre. Informationsstrømmen gennem medierne er ofte endimensionelle og præget at sensationsjournalistik. Vi må et spadestik dybere for egentlig at kunne forstå, hvad der finder sted. At møde de mennesker, situationen berører, er en fantastisk mulighed for at opnå denne forståelse. På konferencen vil du derfor møde oplægsholdere, der er en del af historieskrivningen, og få deres tolkning og indsigt i, hvad der sker i deres land og i regionen netop nu. Du vil derudover få deres bud på, hvordan du kan benytte denne viden i din undervisning på en måde, hvor stereotyper undgås, og den flerdimensionelle forståelse åbnes op. UDBYTTE: Konkrete værktøjer til hvordan du kan undervise om MENA i netop dit fag Et møde med det nye Mellemøsten og Nordafrika
