An Online Course on Bringing Living Heritage to the Classroom in Asia-Pacific
ICHCAP, UNESCO, and Category 2 Center APCEIU collaborated and developed an online course on “Bringing Living Heritage to the Classroom in Asia-Pacific”. We invite you to join the online course that will launch on 22 April 2022 (14:00-15:30 UCT+7).
This course provides key resources and guidance for teachers and people interested in education and culture on why and how to integrate living heritage in their lessons and extracurricular activities in the school. Such lessons and activities aim to make learning more contextualized, relevant and engaging for students while they help raise awareness about the importance of safeguarding living heritage.
