Here at EuroClio, we understand that all of us are trying our best to maintain as much normalcy in and out of work during these strange and uncertain times.
Museum of Palestinian History & Art – Educational Material for Teachers Survey
In the year 2017, the Museum of Palestinian History and Art, a unique online educational experience, will open its doors for the first time, promising to bring a new depth of understanding about Palestine to a global public. With the official launch of the website more than -educational material and exhibits on Palestinian history, identity, and culture will be accessible from anywhere in the world. Featuring cutting-edge, interactive and multimedia content, the Museum of Palestinian History and Art will place the Palestinian experience front and center of an understanding of the region’s events past and present.
The museum wishes to become the primary source of information on Palestine, providing a range of serious scholarly works coupled with interactive educational material for teachers, researchers and educators. Therefore the Museum of Palestinian History and Art would like to invite you to take part in a brief, anonymous survey of ten multiple choice questions (time of completion ca. 2-3 minutes). Your answers will enable the museum team to gain valuable insights into already existing educational materials on the subject and will help to improve the content according to your needs and expectations.
As part of the Europe 2020 Strategy for sustainable growth in the EU, the multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations (ESCO) was set up. The ambition is to develop within ESCO a portal for all occupations competencies profiles in 24 languages in order to enhance the common language and relation between the labour market and education, with education more focused on competencies needed, and employers more explicit in what competencies they are looking for when they have vacancies. This would also enhance labour mobility as people from abroad would find themselves qualified to enter the job market in another country.
However, that requires input from people in the field.
EuroClio and ESCO are calling upon you to register for a closed online English language survey about the preliminary results of the ESCO portal. If you or your organisation would like to contribute to the online consultation you can register one or more experts by 13 October 2015, on here.
Any question now or during the consultation process can be directed to Nuria Moyes firstname.lastname@example.org
Colleagues from Belgium, Bulgaria, Estonia, France, Greece, Italy, Israel, Kosovo, Republic of Macedonia, The Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United States and United Kingdom have selected their top 3 teaching challenges and top 3 teaching methods, which will determine what will be developed first for the Historiana learning section. This section is being developed by Benny Christensen, Helen Snelson, Ineke Veldhuis-Meester, with contributions from an international community of educators. The section will contain information related to teaching challenges, teaching methods and historical thinking, and offer a place on the Historiana website to feature ready-to-use learning activities. It is possible to fill in the survey and help set the priorities until 6 January 2014.
