ICCROM International Summer School
Communication and Teaching Skills in Conservation and Science
Rome, Italy
13-24 July, 2015

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
