Heritage-interpretation is a form of non-formal learning through proposing significant data about a site to the public. It draws cognitive and emotional relationships between the visitors and what they can discover in a particular place: a reserve, a historic site, a museum etc. It reveals deeper meanings, relationships and insights via active experience and illustrative media rather than merely passing on facts. InHerit aims to build heritage staff capacity for competence oriented non-formal learning in inspiring contexts that improve the adult learning potential at heritage sites through professional development of managers and educators at these sites. In-service training courses at European and national level shall further their competences to realize the full potential of Heritage Interpretation for non-formal and informal learning.
The course materials are available in different languages and include a complete set of materials that will be used for the HI training courses. The most useful for teachers amongst these are:
- Training Manual: A manual for tutors with a range of interactive methods such as role play, proposals for discovery based learning through small group project etc.
- E-book: Digging Deeper: Exploring the Philosophical Roots of Heritage Interpretation
