Towards the integration of green and cultural heritage management. Developing content for blended learning

Heleen Van Londen, Marjo Schlaman, Andrea Travaglia

The European Archaeological and Natural Heritage project (ANHER) focuses on increasing knowledge and skills for professionals working in the archaeological and natural heritage sectors in Europe. Facing social, economic and climate changes, the development and improvement of knowledge of landscape management and protection of the archaeological and natural heritage has become a necessity. Through an interdisciplinary approach to the landscape heritage, new knowledge, new methods and new policies can be developed which will improve and strength conventional approaches. The basic principle is that through a better understanding of the importance of archaeological heritage and natural heritage for the rural environment, sustainable management of the landscape can be realized.
Within the project, the six European partners develop a variety of integrated educational e-learning materials designed to treat important facets of both sectors. The project also contributes to the development of improved methods and content of higher education and vocational training in the field of heritage. The digital method ensures that education sectors can be connected to the continuous changes concerning the protection and management of archaeological and natural heritage. This includes the role of the built heritage in urban planning and local and regional heritage policy in Europe.
The project will result in European Centres of Integrated Heritage Teaching Excellence in view of preservation of knowledge, methods and policy. These centres will provide an organizational structure for continuous training and a technical infrastructure for blended learning that will benefit the various labour markets.
