Communication and teaching skills in conservation and science, ICCROM summer school

Funding is requested for participation in a 2 week summer school Communication and teaching skills in conservation and science run by the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) in Rome.

The course will focus on the specialist area of communication and teaching skills in conservation. It will explore innovative and effective modalities of learning and teaching for the core concepts of conservation and science.

These concepts will subsequently be disseminated amongst colleagues and students in Lincoln through the design and delivery of a workshop based on the outcomes of the summer school.

The aim of the project was to participate in the workshop and use the experience to inform teaching at UoL – this was achieved.

The content of the workshop was disseminated to colleagues through an internal CPD workshop delivered on 14/9/2017 (see attached photo). The workshop covered forming groups, modalities of learning and teaching communication, research methods, and specific conservation topics.

The content of the course has also been incorporated into teaching of modules on our BA, MA and Graduate Diploma courses. I have personally introduced elements into three modules at BA1 (1016), BA2 (2045) and Graduate Diploma (3061 and 3062). I have also been informed by colleagues who attended the CPD workshop in September that they have/are planning to introduce elements at MA and BA1 levels in their own modules.

There is an online learning platform established by ICCROM which aims to encourage summer school participants to continue exchanging ideas on teaching and learning methods and also to test online learning platforms.

Please break down expenditure into different categories e.g. teaching & learning resources, travel, accommodation, etc. Please be sure to include VAT.

  • €600 course fee
  • €200 flights to Rome

The networking opportunities were excellent, possible Erasmus partners were identified and through one contact made in Rome I have been invited to take part in an expert meeting in October reviewing UNSECO policy.
