Intercultural learning through virtual and on-site exchanges between York University students, refugee students on the Thai Burma border and displaced migrant students in Ranong, Thailand

Description

York contributed on-line sections of LA&PS (anthropology and geography) courses to an award-winning initiative offering an Australian Catholic University diploma in liberal studies for refugees on the Thai-Burma border. In addition, the project involves development of virtual field trips/ethnography in partnership with Thai universities, whereby York undergraduate and graduate students, along with refugee and Thai students, engage in online interaction and sharing of assignments.
