Core of the Core on Migration:

This proposal follows the previous Core Modules Proposal of CLIOHnet (see "Core of the Core"). It shows how Clioh's Workshop publications and the new results of the Network of Excellence, CLIOHRES, can be used to explore a central theme for European citizens, Migration.

The CLIOHnet2 ad hoc Commission on Materials has gathered and reordered the materials adapting them to the learning necessities in today’s Europe. To fulfil this demand, the "Core of the Core on Migration" explores the theme critically and provides specific knowledge of migration, of its changing historical patterns, its developing processes and also of its own and distinctive methodology. The subject specific and generic competences and critical and self-critical abilities are also underlined. Using such materials in learning/teaching should create a critical awareness of demographical movements at the trans-national and national level, as well as from one European region to another.

The "Core of the Core on Migration"  corresponds to a Module of 2 ECTS (50 to 60 hours of student time; 12 to 15 contact hours; 38 to 45 hours for individual or group study work). It is addressed to Second Year Students. But of course it can be used flexibly. according to the ECTS allocation and Tuning competences for different learning needs.

The intention is to gather all the materials already produced by the History Networks through CLIOH, CLIOHnet, CLIOHRES and Clioh’s Workshop collections of books. It will allow teachers, students and any other professional participant of the teaching process to benefit of the historiographical work which is available in these series. It will also produce important side benefits for the groups represented in the Network and for the Network as well. It can be used freely: we would appreciate your feed-back.
