In the framework of DSI4 project, in the strand of work for capacity building and “train the trainers” effort, a joint webinar is organized by Euroclio and Photoconsortium to experiment and develop skills about reusing digital cultural content in educational resources.

The webinar will leverage on one hand on the freely reusable collections published in Europeana by Photoconsortium content partners, and on the other hand on the tools and resources of Historiana, the educational portal developed by Euroclio.

The event is organized in 3 online sessions between May and July 2022, and will involve the creative participation of cultural heritage institutions, teachers and students who will work together on three steps:

  • 20th May h. 10-11.30: analysing and identifying a number of nice Europeana collections that are suitable for educational reuse, in the context of different thematic frameworks chosen by the participants
  • 27th May h. 10-11.30: reusing the collections to create models for e-learning activities in Historiana, to be used by teachers and students of secondary schools and university courses
  • early July (exact date and timing TBC): evaluation and discussion about the expected impact, moderated by Euroclio experts
