Project aims

Three objectives, touching societal, educational, institutional needs respectively, are set:

- to promote collaborative, participatory and intercultural digital approaches to ancient written heritage through new professional profiles and focused training of skilled graduates;

- to strengthen the crucial cooperation between higher education and cultural heritage institutions supplying materials for teaching and self-training to academics and providing stakeholders with support services;

- to meet learning needs of graduates in the field of highly specialized digital skills applied to the study of ancient writing media in old European, Asian and African languages through innovative teaching modules. From a methodological point of view, these modules are built around the following key principles:

a. they will be based on an internationally shared definition of learning outcomes;

b. they will use innovative pedagogies, enabling mutual learning among trainees and teachers, lifelong learning for both, and research-based learning;

c. they will enable modular integration into courses in various forms (including distance learning practice, blended, e-learning), according to training needs and contexts and they will bear future development and implementation according to evolution of technologies and training practices;

d. they will foster the inclusion of the training sets inside the university study curricula, increasing attractiveness through ICT-enriched learning and real-world-applications.

At the end of the project the modules will be made available online so that they may be used, implemented and customized according to different European contexts and teaching/learning needs.
