We have accumulated a vast experience over the years.
The context –in which the project has its roots- as defined by the European Commission’s contribution to the Leaders’ meeting in Gothenburg, 17 November 2017
“Strengthening European Identity through Education and Culture “-is that one of a Europe with deep cultural diversities at the basis of its strength and, at the same time, a common ground that makes up the distinct feature of the European way of life. In this context education and culture play a pivotal role for people.
So on one side, understanding and preserving our cultural heritage and diversity are prerequisites to maintain our cultural community, our common values and identity, on the other side , using the words of Edgar Morin in “Seven complex lessons in education for the future (Preface by the Director-General of UNESCO) “one of the greatest problems we face is how to adjust our way of thinking to meet the challenge of an increasingly complex, rapidly changing, unpredictable world.
The project context is that one of a Europe with deep cultural diversities and, at the same time, a common ground that makes up the distinct feature of the European way of life.
In this context, education and culture can play a pivotal role for people, in particular when we succed in breaking down the traditional barriers between disciplines.
Within this framework, the project goal is to approach and explore the European cultural heritage topic and one methodology: the integrated teaching and learning one. The aim is to mix them together fostering a new and crucial topic for VET offer by a new approach, integrating it in some existing training paths within the VET provider offer in Europe.
The project will design, implement, test and disseminate a kit of didactic-educational tools tailored made on VET trainers. The kit is going to be an OER, at disposal of everybody.
The main target group is represented by VET trainers. In a consequent cascade flow, the second main target people are VET learners. The benefits for them lies in the enhancement of their learning motivation and the concrete opportunities to study the same content from different perspectives. In addition, the methodology lets them to develop crucial key competences, such as social and civic competence, cultural awareness and expression.
