FULL DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING CONTENTS
IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE TRAINING: (EN)
* Preparation starts with the pre-registration. This is only possible by way of the participant form in the course website. So from the very start of contact with the chain course participants work with the chain tools.
* After receiving confirmation of selection by the national agencies, the (selected) teacher’s access is being 'validated'. The course participant receives a user account (username/password combination) for the seminar magazine. In this magazine preparation articles are being published (with regard to content and ict aspects). The teachers are also expected to input own contributions: to introduce themselves and to describe cultural heritage elements in their own environment.
* During the course itself the software is being used as a normal tool. The course is aimed at producing a 'virtual book' about the course topic as part of the general chain book.
The chain network creates and promotes instruments and events, like courses and seminars, to accomplish collaboration between people and institutes involved in European cultural heritage education. In the course of this work a conceptual framework of (European) cultural heritage (education) is being developed.
To this aim internet instruments have been developed to be used in courses, projects and schools. The general idea of this software is to have a virtual book on European cultural heritage jointly produced by teachers and pupils all over Europe. Each course delivers a contribution to this 'book'.

Sevilla: Las Otras Orillas (The other Shores)
One of the main themes in the chain programme is cultural interaction between Europe and other parts of the world. (European) culture can only be defined as the outcome of various influences, within Europe itself and between Europe and its neighbour countries/continents. Therefore various travelling courses are being held to study this cultural interaction. The Sevilla course fits into this theme: Las Otras Orillas. How is Europe being influenced by and how does Europe influence the 'other shores': Mediterranean and Atlantic. Sevilla is a central and symbolic location to concentrate on this issue. Seas, like rivers, can be bastions or bridges. Is there a cultural entity north and south of Gibraltar street?
During the preparation period (see above) ict instruments (on-line magazine, slide series tool) are being used. During the actual course period participants collect information during field work, visits and lectures (usually on site). At the last day of the course working groups/teams transfer this information/documentation into the course website. After the course this input is improved and expanded.
The course itself offers a didactic model for heritage education: main (European) themes, fieldwork activities, teaching methods, reflection and the use of advanced, interactive ict tools. The chain (ict) instruments can be used to prepare and realise own partnerships and projects. To this aim after the course the participants receive coordinator rights in using the chain software for their own educational work, in their own schools as well as in (comenius) partnership work.
