Projects

Different projects have contributed material to Historiana. A number of these projects have been coordinated by EUROCLIO – The European Association of History Educators. Other projects have been initiated by partner institutions. Historiana can function as dissemination channel for high quality education material for a European or global audience. Please contact info@historiana.eu if you would like to explore possibilities for cooperation.


Exploring European History and Heritage

Exploring European History and Heritage is funded by the EU Lifelong Learning Programme – Comenius. The ambitious goal of the Exploring European History and Heritage is to build an educational online tool on history and heritage from a European perspective. A European perspective on history and heritage help us to look at our own past through the eyes of the “other” and to understand differences in order to overcome divisions. The thematic approach makes it possible to trace back long term developments, see and analyze turning points in history and see similarities and difference between events and locations. Multiple perspectives on the past and inter- and intra state comparison help, with respect for diversity, to show what people share. New material can be added to the educational website, which has been branded ‘Historiana – Your Portal to the Past'. Academic historians and history education professionals are invited to help in the building and testing of this tool in order to make it better and more representative.

Discovering Diversity

Discovering Diversity is an educational project on the history of migrants in the Euro-Mediterranean area. The main objective is the development of a methodology that helps history and civic teachers to connect the individual history of students to the local and larger history of migration in the Euro-Med region. The educational modules from this project will be included in the theme ‘People on the Move’ of the Historiana website.

The project, finalized in 2011, produced 6 historical online case studies, based on a framework with a standard set of key questions. The modules were developed during capacity building and hands on workshops. In 2011 the last of these workshops was organised in Istanbul (Turkey). The last editing meeting took place in London(UK).

Contributors are responsible for developing teaching units in the form of case studies or a long term development study within a given theme. This includes the selecting and contextualizing the appropriate resource materials, translation and copyright clearance and produce suitable teaching and learning ideas, where appropriate. Editors are responsible for ensuring historical accuracy, inclusiveness, multiperspectivity and potential for transnational use of the material on the website.

History that Connects

The History that Connects project aims to develop, through collaborative writing, inclusive and multi-perspective ready to use class room teaching material with a focus on the history of the Western Balkans from 1900-1945. Moreover, it wants to further expertise in innovative methodology and pedagogy among the participating history educators and their peers. The region needs this project as there is a need for greater innovative expertise in the teaching and learning of history, especially with a cross border regional focus, empowering dialogue and critical thinking on sensitive topics in the recent history. Without enhanced innovative high-quality professionalism, history curricula, history textbooks and the (in-service) history teachers training might continue to play a dividing force in this region.

The project is in line with the Strategy of the UN Alliance for Civilizations and the Education Support Program of the Open Society Institute in the field of education, youth and intercultural dialogue as it will stimulate intercultural, inter-ethnic and religious understanding, combat xenophobia, negative stereotypes and will enable joint reflection and cooperation between key civil society actors.
