Communication Training for History Teachers Associations
Together with the House of European History, EuroClio is proud to launch our first ever communication and dissemination workshop, which will take place at the House of European History in Brussels on 13 and 14 May 2023. This event will bring together communications experts and authors of articles for History Teachers’ Associations Bulletins to discuss the educational potential of the permanent exhibition of the House of European History. We are currently looking for up to 15 History Teachers’ Associations representatives who wish to join us at the event!
About the event
To celebrate the new educational initiatives of the House, we have decided to invite Bulletin authors of History Teachers’ Associations across Europe to a 1.5 day event, where they will: (1) receive exclusive training on European History, (2) contribute to the development of future educational resources by the House of European History, (3) take part in a guided tour of the exhibitions at the museum with a specific focus on the role of multi-perspectivity, (4) and discuss how to plan communication campaigns for their History Teachers’ Associations with a communication expert.
Teachers and students have proved to be a core audience of the House of European History. When presenting the learning offer, the learning team will focus on the permanent exhibition, EU integration, the learning material available for teachers on the HEH YouTube channel, the virtual tour, online teacher’s workshops and the future Digital toolbox. Indeed, in 2022, the learning team conducted an important front-end evaluation with a pool of 150 teachers from across the EU. The findings will be used to prepare the content of new educational material based on the needs and expectations of the teachers. For example, the editors will have the possibility to test a specific workshop on democracy and the history of European integration in light of the upcoming European elections.
Participants can expect the programme to include, among others, the following elements:
Visit to the permanent exhibition of the House of European History
Active workshop on how to build a larger audience for History Teachers’ Associations
Active workshop on the actual and future educational resources developed by the House of European History with a focus on European Integration
As participants will be asked to write an article for their national History Teachers’ Association on their experience during the training and networking event, the programme will include also a work session during which participants will draft their own articles, receiving feedback by communication experts invited by EuroClio and the House of European History.
We expect that each participant will return home after the training with an increased knowledge and understanding of the educational potential of the permanent exhibition of the House of European History. In addition, by the end of the training, each participant will return home with:
A draft article on the House of European History for their History Teachers’ Association
A draft communication plan to build a larger audience for their Association at local and international level
A stronger network with other Bulletin authors in national History Teachers’ Associations, including a list of at least two potential guest articles for future issues of their magazine.
