The first day started with a partners meeting in order to discuss the finalization of the project results: the guidelines, good practices, needs assessment, final report and dissemination report.










In the afternoon the partners worked on the final report form and reached common agreements on how to proceed until the end of the project. The partners were then guided through Laodikeia Ancient City and Akhan Kervansaray.

Gidsencursus ” / Course for guides: At the start of the ELHSM project, the Ename Center elaborated a first version of a course for guides (volunteers) ” De Kemmelberg: Portretten uit de prehistorie” (the Kemmelberg:  portraits from prehistoric times).  The course was based on the digital archive of the site that came about in the context of the European Marie Curie action (Chiron fellowship). The realization of the third ELHSM meeting of the project in Belgium was completely inspired by the experience and the network that came into being within the course for guides.  The course is built around five human portraits. It aims at exploring actively the surrounding landscape for a better understanding of prehistoric life. If you are interested in receiveing more information, please contact us.

The first meeting of the project: “ Experiential Learning in historical sites and museums”, was held in Mondavio, Italy, organised by “Vivere il Museo” on 16 and 17 October 2012.

All European  partners from Turkey, Belgium, Romania, and Italy participated in the meeting and had the opportunity to get to know each other  and present their organisations/institutions.

All partners are from the educational sector or from Musuems and heritage sector.

During the meeting each institution presented how they would implement the project in their country, which methodologies they use, the activities carried out and the results obtained by each organisation.

It was interesting to see and hear the degree of passion one puts into their work in each of the countries.

The second day of the meeting was dedicated to organisational aspects of the work, which we as a group expect to carry out in the next two years.

The results have been revised and we started to work on the first activity, the needs analysis to be carried out within all partners countries by May 2013.

“Experiential Learning in Historical sites and museums” is a partnership project which intends to create a network of cultural organisations, museums, public funding bodies and training centres in Europe willing to share experiences and different aspects of developing experiential learning activities in museums or historical sites in rural areas.

The partnership will examine the learning possibilities and competences required by staff to develop learning resources to boost the confidence and proficiency of museums and/or historical sites which currently offer limited learning activities.

The intention is to share good and bad practices, case studies on an open platform, involving all actors interested in developing the historical site and/or local community. Furthermore the partnership will develop common guidelines on how to plan experiential learning activities for adults to be used by all organisations or people interested in planning a learning path for adults in historical sites or museums.
“Experiential Learning in Historical sites and museums” is a partnership among Italy, Romania, Belgium, Turkey and Greece which analyses the potentialities of experiential learning for adults in museums and historical sites and develop specific educational paths for each territory by sharing good and bad practices and new ideas in Europe.
The target group of this project are people working in cultural associations, public offices and museums which follow and manage the promotion of historical sites and trainers which manage and plan experiential learning for adults.
