Taking into account that the issues of culture and nature are inseparable, ANHER was a project which aimed to present archaeological heritage with its connections to natural heritage.
Teaching about integrated cultural and natural heritage is still a new thing, therefore the main objective of ANHER was a production of a range of new didactic materials covering the most pertaining aspects of the green archaeological heritage and archaeological dimension of natural heritage.
The innovative didactic content have a form of eight modules covering such issues as:
- sustainability of archaeological landscape management and nature conservation planning,
- nature conservation of archaeological resources,
- land use in perspective of integrated archaeological and natural heritage,
- archaeological and natural heritage in landscape planning and policy analysis,
- integrated floodplain management and its impact upon archaeological heritage,
- integration of archaeological heritage into the historical landscape and the built environment,
- archaeological heritage in the process of decision making in the natural heritage sector.
Two modules provide a systematic training of trainers and teachers using different methods of distance learning, in particular:
- covering complexity of training delivery, including specific needs of trainees,
- production of course curricula,
- use of available didactic resources,
- delivery of training to different target groups using methods of distance learning.
All newly produced didactic materials are stored in the Content Repository – a kind of interactive database of e-learning resources in the field of protection and management of archaeological heritage. Its major functionality is a capacity to create tailored e-learning content to meet needs of different trainees.
