Challenges of History Teaching in Europe
Challenges of history teaching in Europe have been the main topic of the international workshop held in Belgrade on 10 and 11 March 2022. The workshop was organized by the Council of Europe Office in Belgrade, Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Belgrade and the NGO Education for the 21st century, in the framework of the Month of Francophonie. The event was supported by the recently established Observatory on History Teaching in Europe (OHTE), an Enlarged Partial Agreement within the Council of Europe with a mission to promote quality education with the aim to enhance democratic culture. Serbia was one of the 17 founding states of the Observatory.
We are implementing the BELGRADE ADVENTURE project in cooperation with the XIV Belgrade Gymnasium and the Georgije Ostrogorski Student Association with the support of various institutions of the City of Belgrade. The project started with the realization in December 2019 and has been going on continuously since then. Different cultural and artistic heritage of Belgrade is presented on our website.
Learning to Disagree
A skilled team of 14 history educators has developed, as part of this project, 15 sets of content that enable students and educators to have dialogue, debates and discussions on contested issues. Each set of contents provides information on the issues at stake, the historical context, a variety of viewpoints, and questions that made students think.
These sets of content focus on four different themes:
- People on the Move
- Surviving Under Pressure
- Contested Cultural Heritage
All these sets of content are available on Historiana.eu, in the Historical Content section. To further help teachers using these resources, the Learning to Disagree team has developed dedicated lesson plans, which are available on Historiana.eu in the Teaching and Learning section.
