International Training Seminar 2019

November 1 - November 30


Teaching European History – innovative approaches to promote students’ understanding of current European affairs in the light of European History

Exact dates to be confirmed

Often, the teaching of European History is limited, in school curricula, to the teaching of the events that led to the creation of the European Union, beginning in 1950 with the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community or in 1957 with the Treaty of Rome and the creation of the Common Market. In addition, school curricula envisage little time to dedicate to the topic, often no more than a couple of hours. As a consequence, pupils’ ability to understand current European affairs in light of European History might result hampered. During this weekend training, participants will have the possibility to discuss on how to teach the events that took place before the Second World War in connection to current European affairs.

The training will consist of active workshops, interactive sessions, panel discussions, and a visit to the House of European History. In addition, teachers will be introduced to the Changing Europe unit on Historiana.eu, which sets the European Union in the historical context and underlines the ideals and dilemmas that are at the basis of European past and current affairs.
