An in person train the trainer and networking event of EuroClio
EuroClio, the international association of History teachers, is proud to launch the first ever cross-sectoral networking and train the trainer event, which will take place in The Hague on 3 and 4 March 2023. The event will bring together practising teachers and cultural heritage professionals, to discuss the potential of digitised collections and their use in the classroom.
In facts, on one side teachers are always searching for the perfect primary source that will help their students engage meaningfully with history, and find most of these sources in digitised cultural heritage collections, including via Historiana and Europeana; and on the other side Cultural Heritage Institutions wish to better understand what is the educational value of their collections, and how to bring it closer to teachers in a way that is easy to use.
The 2023 training follows up a successful co-creation experience in 2022 realized in collaboration with Photoconsortium, about reusing photographic collections in educational materials on Historiana.
The training in The Hague will be hosted by Historiana Team Members Helen Snelson, Bridget Martin, and Francesco Scatigna, and will include:
- Sharing sessions, in which participants will explore their needs and wishes when it comes to accessing and creating quality digital learning materials
- Active workshops on how to create an eLearning Activity on Historiana and on what makes a high quality Source Collection
- Co-design sessions where teachers and cultural heritage professionals, together, will develop eLearning Activities and Source Collections using primary sources available in Europeana Collections or on already existing Historiana Partner Pages.
