The paper discusses an online curriculum designed to foster a critical understanding of the occupied Jawlan (Golan Heights). Following the Israeli occupation of most of the Syrian Golan Heights in 1967, the remnant Jawlani population has lived with, and often resisted, enduring forms of domination. The online, bilingual curriculum offers a flexible platform for learning activities in university courses, community workshops and popular education events. It adopts a comparative lens to understand the historical geography of the Jawlani people in relation to other ‘permanent minorities’ created through colonial violence. It adopts the pedagogic idea of co-learning, framed as mujaawarah by the Palestinian educationalist, Munir Fasheh. This prioritises collaborative learning rooted in everyday life experiences.
