The aim of this Handbook is to provide a support for educational staff working with migrants, refugees and asylum seekers and to respond to the lack of pedagogical, psychological, didactical education and training needed in order to face the challenges posed by multilingual, multicultural and multi-ethic learner groups.
To this aim, the Handbook is strictly based on the practical experience of MyHandScraft’s Local Workshops implemented in five European countries: Italy, Cyprus, UK, Greece and Lithuania. The local workshop was based on the methodologies and tools created and embedded in MyHandScraft’s E-Educational Programme and later adapted to the local contexts according to the peculiarities of each group of participants and local setting. This Handbook is structured as a practical tool to be easily embedded in the educators’ daily work, helping them also acquire new means to better track and monitor the progress of adult learners, and widening their pedagogical capacities through an innovative teaching approach that valorises and combines artistic competences and cultural heritage. It is an innovative and high-quality learning tool for adult educators working with adult migrant learners, easily adaptable for different learning settings and learners’ profiles.
