3rd Belgrade History Teaching Symposium

The Third Belgrade Symposium on History Education, themed "Disarming History," brought together a diverse array of international participants on April 11th and 12th, 2024, in Belgrade. Commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Council of Europe and following the Third Annual Conference of the Observatory for History Teaching in Europe, this symposium has been a cornerstone event for experts and practitioners in history teaching for the past three years. It serves as a dynamic platform for the exchange of innovative practices across academic, pedagogical, student, and educational community, while nurturing democratic culture, intercultural understanding, and multiperspectivity.

Throughout the symposium, a diverse array of meticulously curated panel discussions and workshops aimed to facilitate the exchange of insights and experiences among European experts. The overarching objective was to examine history teaching practices and align them with the recommendations of the Council of Europe.

For the first time, the symposium included concurrent events, namely the International Students' Seminar organized by the International Students of History Association (ISHA) and the international workshop by EuroClio on "Monumental Challenges," enriching the discourse on history education and cultural heritage in Belgrade.

Additionally, the symposium featured workshops encouraging educators to explore societal phenomena from recent history to foster understanding of democratic values and respect for human rights. Participants also had the opportunity to explore Belgrade through guided walking tours, offering diverse perspectives on the city's cultural and historical heritage.

The release of the "Onsite Remembrance Learning" Toolkit during the symposium marked a significant milestone. Developed by teachers from across Serbia and supported by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Serbia, this innovative guide offers practical insights to expand teaching boundaries, showcasing best practices in history education.
