FULL DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING CONTENTS
IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE TRAINING: (EN)
Participants to the Historiana Seminar* will be asked…

• To read An Introduction to Historiana, The Introduction to the theme Rights and Responsibilities, and R. Stradling, Multiperspectivity in History Teaching: A Guide for Teachers, CoE Publications, Strasbourg. (freely available online).
• To familiarize themselves with the educational website www.historiana.eu and to respond to a questionnaire.
• To bring material (such as photographs, textual sources) that is needed for the workshops (this will be communicated to the participants in advance).
• To prepare some initial ideas about the development of case studies, long term development studies, source galleries and/or teaching and learning ideas related to Rights and Responsibilities or one of the other Historiana themes (in case they are interested to become involved the development of the Historiana website and would like to discuss this with one of the editors).

* The development of the educational website www.historiana.eu has started with the EU Comenius Multilateral project ‘Exploring European History and Heritage’. EUROCLIO and several partners including the Netherlands Institute for Heritage have committed themselves to continue to improve and add to the Historiana website through new project and voluntary contributions as part of the Historiana Programme.
The objectives of the Historiana Seminar are…

• To give the participants a good understanding of Historiana programme including the reasons why the programme has started, the way the website is being build, how people can contribute and what is being developed at that time (thereby widening the group of users).

• To stimulate the use of innovative teaching methods related to history, heritage and citizenship, with a special focus on the theme ‘Rights and Responsibilities’.

• To think collaboratively about the challenges that history, citizenship and heritage education face at the moment, to assess the needs of the user’s community, evaluate the quality and usability of the existing material developed in the Historiana programme, and to discuss the implications for the future development of Historiana.

• To stimulate the exchange of ideas and experiences related to the teaching of history, heritage and citizenship between professionals from different backgrounds.
Participants will get a good understanding of what Historiana is, because there will be:

• An information package about Historiana that they receive beforehand by email and at the registration desk;
• A general presentation by the Editor-in-Chief at the start of the seminar;
• A demonstration of an exemplary Case Study on Rights and Responsibilities; and
• An information market where other material that has been developed in the Historiana programme will be presented.

Participants will be stimulated in the use of innovative teaching practices because there will be:

• Active workshops by experienced trainers; and
• An overview of good practices that will be disseminated after the Seminar.

Participants will think collaboratively about challenges, user’s needs, usability of the material and future developments of Historiana because there will be:

• Roundtable discussions where participants are encouraged to share their own views; and
• An evaluation session at the end of the programme where participants are asked for their feedback and suggestions for further improvement.

Participants will be stimulated to exchange ideas and experiences because there will be:

• An icebreaking activity in the beginning of the Seminar;
• A cultural programme with on-site learning; and
• A social evening programme targeting to encourage social interaction.
The follow up of the Historiana Seminar consists of:

• The opportunity to become actively involved in the further development of the Historiana website by developing or piloting case studies, long term development studies, source galleries, and/or teaching and learning ideas.

• Efforts by EUROCLIO to create new project opportunities to add more material to the Historiana website where people can join in if they are interested.

• Online seminars organized by EUROCLIO where participants to Historiana Seminars will be invited to join.

• Regular updates about major developments within the Historiana programme, for example when new materials are made available, are ready for testing, or when new training activities are scheduled.
