From our friends Icarus: European archives are fundamental primary sources for discovering and reinforcing shared European culture and history. The project European Digital Treasures aims at bringing joint European heritage, and especially its digital versions, major visibility, outreach and use.
One of the project’s missions is to reach out to new audiences. In this context, the Archival Literacy Online Course has been created to assist teachers in introducing students of grade 9 and higher to the world of archives.
This course offers a sustainable and attractive tool linked to young user education on how to use archives, teaching students how to conduct research within the archival holdings, through traditional lectures and presentations at schools and integrate the possibilities offered by archives, mostly in Humanities, specifically in areas like history, arts and geography.
On Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 6 pm CEST, the European Digital Treasures project partners will hold a webinar introducing the Archival Literacy Course. We cordially invite you to participate!
