Cultural heritage has a crucial role to play in education and digital technologies are more and more important to support education, teaching and learning. With the aim of increasing digital cultural data as a trusted primary source – essential in this era of disinformation – to implement innovative pedagogies, the Europeana “Digital Education with Cultural Heritage” MOOC is now back, to teach about the educational potential of digital cultural heritage and prepares educators to implement it using digital technologies and innovative pedagogies, like CLIL or Project Based Learning. The course  introduces the learning scenario methodology, shows how to use it and how to build personal scenarios.

This course starts on 27 February 2023 and will run for 6.5 weeks – with modules opening one by one each week, followed by a 1.5 week grace period. The course consists of five modules, with a peer-reviewed final activity developed and offered in English, and a workload of about 25 hours in total.

This year, our Massive Open Online Course will be offered in English and Romanian. It has upgraded content and more resources for integrating audiovisual materials (AV) into learning practices. And for the first time, the course offers ready-to-use resources for post-secondary educators.
