Great news! For the project RETHINK, EUROCLIO was able to select four participants for the Expert Group for Work Package 2!
Through a call that was spread in the network of EUROCLIO, almost 20 applications were received. Based on our selection criteria, including experience in teaching in remembrance education, the ability to pilot practices with students, and geographical and gender balance, the following four participants were selected:
- Dorina Subashi Anglisht (Albania) is a lecturer of Museology, Archaeology, and the Culture Heritage of Albania, at the Department of Tourism of the Faculty of Business, “Aleksandër Moisiu” University (Albania).
- Martin Liepach (Germany) is a teacher at the European School Liebigschule/Frankfurt in combination with part-time work at the Pedagogic Centre of the Jewish Museum Frankfurt and Fritz Bauer Institut.
- Nena Močnik (Finland) is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Turku Institute for Advanced Studies.
- Paula Cowan (Scotland) is a reader in Education at the University of the West of Scotland, School of Education.
We are very happy to have selected this team that will be able to have a more systemic impact on the formal education sector.
It will be the task of the Expert Group to pilot practices from the partner institutions and other organizations, and to devise a handbook for how to use these practices in other contexts. The Expert Group will eventually consist of twelve experts from eight different countries who are active in the field of formal and informal history, citizenship, and remembrance education.
The Expert Group functions as a bridge between informal and formal education, and therefore consists of individuals from both sectors. The partner institutions will provide eight experts from the informal sector.
