Within the project logical structure, this joint staff training event represents a key activity in the process leading to the production of the intellectual output (O1). In fact, the training will be organized in Hungary and led by KOME, responsible for coordinating the activities related to the development of the intellectual output, so that all teachers and educators involved in the following piloting phase will be trained by the WP leader.
The aims of the training are strictly connected to the second specific objective of the project, i.e. to create and develop an innovative educational methodology addressed to high school pupils, aimed to promote the active their involvement in the construction of paths of discovery and interpretation of cultural heritage under the thread of ancient migration flows.
In fact, the joint staff training event is scheduled by March 2021, when the draft training program will be ready and the pilot courses in partners’ countries will be about to begin.
The workshop 4-day workshop will be organized in Pecs, hosted by the Hajnoczy Kollegium, and will involve Zsolnay Heritage Management Nonprofit Ltd. as the organisation responsible for the UNESCO heritage site Early Christian Necropolis of Pécs. Participants will be selected by participating organisations among school teachers and heritage managers. They will attend the training as a preliminary activity for the joint development of the TRAME educational methodology, and in particular to set up common basis for the delivery of pilot courses. In fact, both categories are in need of effective tools and methodologic approaches to take advantage of the educational value of cultural heritage and engage pupils in its conservation and valorisation. The Turkish and Polish participants, after the end of the workshop will organise a training in their countries, in order to transfer the learning outcomes, and in particular the TRAME educational methodology, to the school teachers and heritage managers who are going to be involved in the piloting activities at local level.
The training timetable will be divided into two daily sessions according to the following schedule:
Morning 09:00 – 13:30
Lunch Time 13:30 – 15:30
Afternoon 15:30 – 19:00
The program of the training will explore the different key activities foreseen within the TRAME educational methodology, namely:
– identification of the main themes to be developed
– research activities
– exploration of the sites
– reflection and creative activities
– experiential interpretation
– elaboration of final outputs
Of course, participants will also be working on the key concepts characterizing the TRAME project, such as in particular the relation between cultural heritage and European citizenship, cultural diversity and territorial identities, social cohesion and social inclusion. The topic of migrations will also be addressed and framed within the TRAME initiative as the fil rouge connecting the different archaeological sites involved in the project. Participants will be working on the connections and common elements between them, under the thread of ancient migratory flows.
Within this framework, storytelling is especially important: by weaving stories around archaeological sites, a tighter bond can be created between cultural heritage and students, while the knowledge transfer becomes more efficient. Participants will learn how to exploit the stories and meanings of the cultural heritage which can serve as examples on universal human values and promote a better understanding of social phenomena and the value of cultural interactions.
