Call for par­ti­ci­pants to the The Wor­ld Con­gress of School History Teachers

The Wor­ld Con­gress of School History Tea­chers offers a unique opportu­ni­ty for history educa­tors to meet col­le­agu­es from all across the wor­ld, to discuss seve­ral key aspects of History Educa­tion today. The Natio­nal Com­mit­tee of Rus­si­an Histo­ri­ans, who is hosting the Wor­ld Con­gress, has invi­ted Euro­Clio to host seve­ral ses­sions, and to invi­te col­le­agu­es from Euro­pe via an open call for participants.

What is on offer?

Over four days, you will have the pos­si­bi­li­ty to dive into the topi­cs of: how is history tack­led in dif­fe­rent school systems, what is the pur­po­se of history, and natio­nal exams; what is the role of the history text book today, and how are trans­na­tio­nal  text­books cre­a­ted; how to teach con­tro­ver­si­al topi­cs; tea­ching about revo­lu­tions in wor­ld history, and about the second wor­ld war; onli­ne tea­ching; the Coun­cil of Euro­pe Obser­va­tory on History Tea­ching. The Con­gress will be held in Eng­lish and Russian.
