ICCROM International Summer School

From: Isabelle Verger <iv<-at->
Date: Thursday, December 20, 2012
ICCROM International Summer School
Communication and Teaching Skills in Conservation and Science
15-26 July 2013
Rome, Italy

Why: Successful interdisciplinary collaboration is essential for
meaningful conservation actions. A shared understanding of core
principles of the diverse fields involved is the basis on which such
collaboration is built. Conservation education programmes and
professional development activities are under pressure to teach more
in less time. Now is the time to rethink our way of teaching and to
explore the potential of new didactic approaches to learning about
conservation and science.

What: Explore innovative and effective modalities of learning and
teaching core concepts of conservation and science, by working on
issues identified by the participants and the course team.  This
summer school aims at offering conceptual and practical tools for
designing and implementing educational and training activities on
conservation and science.

How: The intensive summer school will consist of interactive
sessions, both in the classroom and around Rome, and practical
exercises. The working language will be English.

Who: The participants will be up to 16 heritage professionals, with
at least 3 years of experience in teaching, either full-time or
alongside another professional practice. The course team will
consist of conservation, science and education specialists from the
ICCROM network and beyond.

Cost: Euro 600 Fee. Participants will be responsible for their round
trip travel costs to and from Rome (Italy) and their living costs,
including accommodation in Rome, approximately 900 Euro.  A limited
number of scholarships will be available.
