Definition of the training methodology for the following pilot course identifying best practices and innovative curriculum so to manage the challenges presented by a digitally-empowered education system.
Since the scope of DIGICULT is to tackle the use and fruition of culture after the changes that the COVID-19 pandemic brought, all efforts are aimed at imagining and implementing innovative practices, new forms of promotion, communication, access and transmission of cultural heritage.
To do so all partners will perform a study about the most innovative ways to cope with the situation, identifying which are the best cases in the European scenario to be the basis of their next activities.
Starting from the needs of the beneficiaries, a set of criteria will be followed: the most promising examples of how to face and welcome a digital change in the world of culture and cultural heritage will be collected, discussed and recorded at country level.
It is expected to reach a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in all countries and to funnel all results in an exhaustive paper.
The potential of the examples collected is high: they will be discussed and compared at consortium level and then used as inspiration for the e-learning pathway to be developed.
First of all, this activity implies the study of the state of the art in this domain: as task leader the partner UNIC will coordinate the actions and will set the most relevant criteria to be followed for the collection of data.
Then it will provide partners with common guidelines and a simple, agile template for the collection of information at country level. These will serve to increase their knowledge on matters such as:
- a better interaction with technology;
- more efficient learning and teaching practices;
- new approaches integrating digital and learning through practice;
- alternative learning channels;
- flexible and inclusive learning tools;
- engaging ways to tell cultural places.
The partnership will thus perform a survey aimed at identifying the best practices and innovative curricula so to manage the challenges presented by a digitally-empowered education system and to update the scenario about training and education in the field relevant for the project.
Moreover, in view of the training course, partners will carry out a comparative study of the results obtained in order to have a clear picture of what is going on in Europe in this domain. This study will start at M1 (January 2022), after the common guidelines are shared and agreed by the partners, and will imply different methodologies such as the search for best practices, study of the most relevant cases, interviews with professionals in the fields of interest, etc.
