educational videos

CitizenHeritage supports Higher Education Institutions to experiment with, and assess participatory approaches and methodologies that include crowdsourcing and Citizen Science activities in Cultural Heritage research, practice and learning.
The scope is to enrich the curricula and experiences of university students in this domain, who will be the cultural heritage professionals of the future.

As part of the activities coordinated by partner Erasmus University Rotterdam, a series of six educational videos was produced by students on their experience of studying and managing crowd-based heritage projects.

The series is entitled Citizen Heritage 101.

Videos are an invaluable tool for communicating scientific findings to youth because they provide an engaging and accessible platform for capturing their attention and fostering a sense of curiosity. “Citizen Heritage 101” is a mini-series consisting of 6 episodes that uses videos to introduce and explore the intersection of citizen science and cultural heritage, with each episode serving a specific purpose.
