  • 21/04/22


APCEIU, in collaboration with UNESCO and ICHCAP, is launching the online course "Bringing Living Heritage to the Classroom in Asia-Pacific" on 22 April 2022 (16:00-18:00 KST).

This course, serviced through APCEIU’s GCED Online Campus, provides key resources and guidance for teachers and people interested in education and culture on why and how to integrate living heritage in their lessons and extracurricular activities in the school. Such lessons and activities aim to make learning more contextualized, relevant and engaging for students while they help raise awareness about the importance of safeguarding living heritage

During the course, participants will take a step-by-step approach to develop a lesson plan or school activity connected to a living heritage element of their choice.

Participants are also invited to join the first instructor-led cohort which includes an orientation and 5 weekly live tutorial sessions (22 April - 3 June 2022). The tutorial sessions will provide them with opportunities to exchange information and ideas with instructors and fellow learners, and receive direct feedback from instructors on their newly developed lesson plan and activity.

By the end of the course, the participant will: 

1.    Understand the benefits of using ICH in school programmes and activities.

2.    Gain capacity to develop lessons or activities, with at least one lesson or activity developed as part of the course.

3.    Build synergy with other education programs such as Education for Sustainable Development, Global Citizenship Education or Social and Emotional Learning, etc.

4.    Identify opportunities to develop more lessons or activities in her/his school context.

Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.
