Rethink Heritage


The European project Re-think Heritage was carried out in the framework of the Erasmus+ programme with Grant Agreement no. 2020-1-HU01-KA202-078795

The project was brought into being as a transnational partnership to answer the great need for new, innovative practices in the education of heritage management and protection of monuments.

The Re-Think Heritage project targets the following objectives:

An innovative Digital Handbook which operates with illustrative and interactive features for providing clearer understanding on complex technical details of traditional building technologies and on the debatable questions of historic preservation of monuments, while collecting together the most important principles and instruments of heritage management, their development throughout history and showcasing best practice examples in the management of heritage protected areas and monuments.
An online platform with a series of e-courses containing explanatory videos and the possibility of evaluating newly acquired knowledge.
A printable PDF book.

The results of the project consist of:

Digital Handbook: A digital tool with interactive content in place of long explanatory texts. The content is structured in an accordion format, allowing users to navigate and process the content easily and clearly.
Moodle Course: The texts and illustrations of the Digital Handbook are rearranged into the form of an E-learning course, and it is accessible as part of the learning management system (Moodle) of the project.
Print-form Handbook: An additional resource and outcome of the project is a print-form version of the Digital Handbook. The PDF format allows anyone to browse and explore its content when being offline, or the book can be printed for own use too.
Guide for Moodle Course: First target of the guidance material to explain the usage of the E-learning management platform both to trainers, educators and to learners who can enroll in the courses. Secondly, the material provides solutions and recommendations on how to integrate the course to different educational frameworks, explaining both the technical and educational requirements.
