3rd Team Meeting Decisions and Dilemmas 2 in Budapest, Hungary
November 18, 2016 - November 20, 2016
The project Decisions and Dilemmas: Exploring European Union history through the lens of contemporary issues will result in a series of learning resources that are ready to use in history and citizenship classes at secondary school level across Europe. The focus will be on contemporary issues for the European Union, related to economic imbalances; energy dependency; trade in a global context; the EU potential global power, and opening Europe’s borders for people.
Each issue will result in a learning activity based on active learning methods (such as scripted drama, various forms of debate and discussion, and project work) that are best suited to the nature of that particular issue. As a result the project will show various ways in with students can learn about the EU on an active and engaging way. These learning resources will be developed, tested and implemented by an international group of experienced educators (who are currently teaching citizenship and/or history) with the support of Jean Monnet professors as academic advisors. The involvement of leading academics and school teachers and teacher trainers, will make sure that the learning resources are both academically sound and suited for use in diverse classroom settings. The key project activities are three development workshops and one international training seminar.
Convening in Budapest, Hungary will be done with the aims of;
- To review and pilot the final draft learning resources developed by the core team, including feedback from the piloting phase.
- To develop a strategy and time plan for the finalisation of the materials and preparations for the workshops in San Sebastian.
- To finalise the training elements for the final training that will take place during the EuroClio Annual Conference in San Sebastian in April 2017.
