Historiana Learning Team meet in Bonn

EUROCLIO was invited to participate in the International Conference “Remembering the Past and Building the Future together” of the Pädagogischer Austauschdienst (PAD) 26/27 May 2014 in Bonn. Over 200 participants from various pedagogical professions came together to discuss and discover the roles international exchange projects between schools can play within international cooperation of schools and how they can be designed. These topics were explored through various Q&A’s and thematic workshops. One of these workshops was hosted by the Historiana Learning team and showed the participants the various ways in which Historiana contributes to internationalisation and innovation of history education. Furthermore, EUROCLIO deputy-director Steven Stegers gave a speech to the PAD audience about responsible history in a globalising society which was enthusiastically received by the public.

Besides participation in the PAD Conference, the Historiana Learning Team worked on the final editing of the learning section of Historiana during multiple work sessions from 24 until 28 May. These sessions were very productive and the team worked intensively together on various important topics related to the launch of Historiana First World War Module in July. Bonn also proved to be an inspiring city for the members of the Learning Team as everyone resumed to work with fresh ideas after a visit to ‘Haus der Geschichte’ and participating in other cultural activities.
