THE EMEE STUDY MODULE FOR STUDENTS
Contrasting to the workshops, the study module is more concerned with a theoretical approach to the EMEE concept, although it goes without saying that practical exercises are used frequently during the practice sections, which usually also give students an opportunity to consider the link to museums in their own vicinity.
The first 3 of 15 sections of the study module focus primarily on the basic questions of the EMEE concept, such as the theory of multiperspectivity in the academic discipline of History Didactics, the key elements of EU policies concerning the cultural heritage in Europe as a factor of social integration, or the question of concepts of ‘European identity’ and how they are related to the varying regional, national and cultural identities of European citizens.
The following sections of the study module include topics that, similarly to the Toolkits, focus on different key aspects of the EMEE concept. The study module is characterized by the fact that every single section provides materials such as readings and exercises for students, which all make sure to define the aims of each section clearly and which also include PowerPoint presentations, as well as additional information for the instructor. Finally, each section offers extensive references to relevant secondary literature that makes it easier for both instructors and students to read up on the topics.
As a general rule, the study module can be employed effectively and irrespectively of the practical application of the EMEE concept as part of various educational (and/or vocational) purposes at universities, academies or universities of applied science that are related to museums, cultural history or History Didactics.
