Taking the Next Step: Third Editors Meeting was a Great Success

Forty days after the meeting in Osijek, the editors of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Serbia met in Skopje from 7 to 9 June. The editor’s meeting was very interesting, substantial very busy and a continuation of the previous ones. By observing the themes, the meeting could be divided into three parts.

In the first part, Emina Živković from Serbia stated her own impressions and conclusions on the seminar of Serbian primary and secondary school history teachers which was held in Valjevo, Serbia. Some of the modules for the future publication were piloted in that seminar. This information was very useful to the editors because it gave them the ability to compare the results from the four big piloting seminars (Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Serbia).

The second part of the meeting was about the workshops’ overview from Slovenia, Serbia and Kosovo. The editors went through the rest of the nine workshops, carried out their remarks, notes, comments and conclusions which will be forwarded to the workshops’ authors.
The check and overview of the previous discussed workshops from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro and Macedonia followed. The workshops were corrected, amended and prepared for translantions into other languages.

In the third part of the meeting, technical details of future publication were arranged. The workshop’s fracture for printing, classbook conception, translations to other languages were being negotiated.

Beside the seven previously mentioned editors of the teaching modules, the meeting was actively participated by fellow colleague Besnik Emini from Macedonia who improved the meeting’s quality by offering his conclusions and comments.The very small amount of the free time they had, the editors used for a sightseeing tour of Skopje and its surrounding. They were taken on the tour by the very kind and hospitable hosts Mire Mladenovski and Besnik Emini.
