Heritage should not only be seen as a topic suited for history, art or culture subjects but also as a captivating environment for competency-oriented education. AQUEDUCT - Acquiring Key Competences Through Heritage Education – is an international Comenius project aiming to improve the acquisition of key competences through heritage education and to build teacher capacity for competence oriented education in a heritage context.
AQUEDUCT involves four universities/teacher training programmes and five heritage providers from seven different countries. The confrontation of their individual visions has led to methods, guidelines and criteria for competency-based learning. Result: didactic material and a training course for teachers, initial teacher training students and teachers in primary and lower secondary education.
