AzraqCampSign.jpgInZone’s Higher Education Space in Azraq refugee camp was launched in 2016. Building on the success of our Kakuma Higher Education Space, this project comprises five complementary initiatives: a Global History Lab, offered in cooperation with Princeton University; a MOOC on Resilience in a Refugee Context, developed in partnership with Edraak; an engineering and innovation course, offered by Purdue University in collaboration with InZone; a collaboration with MIT, which trains local refugee learners to develop top-­notch digital learning materials for the x2go mobile learning platform; and InZone's Applied Arts curriculum, offered in partnership with the Flux Foundation. The Azraq Higher Education Space is founded upon the idea that re-thinking higher education - breaking it apart and starting over - requires an innovator’s mindset, and that such a mindset can be nurtured in even the most challenging of settings: a refugee camp. In this way, higher education can help all involved to build back better.
