Civic and Multicultural Education

Dr. Aviv Cohen

In my research, I use qualitative methods (primarily ethnographic studies) that focus on the topics of democratic civic education, multicultural education, and teacher education. 

I am currently engaged in two main studies: the first (in collaboration with Dr. Zvi Bekerman) is of a multicultural-bilingual expanded high school civics course; The second is of an undergraduate course that deals with multicultural education, focusing on the students' experiences following their exposures to theories, practices, and personal reflections. Based on these studies, I aspire to reach insights regarding the goals and practices of multicultural civic education, as well as on the critiques of this field as voiced by the participants.
