Lviv teachers learn new techniques for history lessons and extra-curricula activities

New development of the topic of historical memory within Ukrainian action: Healing the Past programme took place in October 26-27, 2015 in Lviv. 

This time methods of working with life stories, oral memory, and dialogue were presented for history teachers of Lviv schools. Natalia Holosova, a participant of the training on methods of working with memory just a month before, came as the main initiator and partner in this workshop.

Participants of the workshop for history teachers

Thirteen history teachers of varying ages and work experience discussed, learnt, and practiced together. Exercises for listening and self-improvement turned out to be quite challenging. Special attention was paid to the skill of using the techniques at school in time-constrained circumstances. The issue of interaction and mutual understanding of teachers of different ages and teaching experience was also discussed.

Workshop participants demonstrated commitment to ongoing learning and self development.
