Prior to the summer school week, the participants will work individually or in groups with literature studies and a minor initial assignment regarding cultural heritage from their local communities. The assignment must be submitted before the first day of the course and will be included and reflected upon during the course.
The week in August will consist of group work, lectures and visits to cultural heritage sites. Afterwards the participants will work individually or in groups on an assessment.
Specialization is possible both through the initial work, parts of the week and with the assessment. This will be on a subject the participants choose themselves.
To pass the course, participants are required to participate actively in all parts of the course - studying the basic course material, doing the initial assignment, participating in the one-week course in August and handing in the assessment for evaluation.
During the course, the participants will work with examples from practice, and visit a number of cultural heritage sites in relation to the overall themes of cultural heritage, national identity, cultural tourism and education. Upon completion, the participants will be able to use their knowledge, understanding and ideas of dissemination in their further studies and integrate it into their future professional work.
