SORAPS Project presented during annual conference of the International Society for Historical and Systematic Research on Textbooks and Education Media E.V. in Augsburg

Conferences, Dissemination
The Ca’ Foscari University of Venice was officially invited by the International Society for Historical and Systematic Research on Textbooks and Educational Media (IGSBi) to the Annual Conference of the International Society for Historical and Systematic Research On Textbooks And Educational Media present EU projects related to Religious Education. Never, as in the year of the Fifth Centenary of the Protestant Reformation, addressing the important and often neglected topic “Religion and Educational Media” has proved so relevant.

Report of the second SORAPS Project meeting Augsburg (Germany)

Meetings
The second SORAPS project meeting took place in Augsburg (Germany) last October, with the participation of all the consortium partners. The summit marked the definitive transition from the IERS to the SORAPS, other than an opportunity to assess all the project activities implemented and the working processes carried out so far, especially those involved with a greater engagement of the partner schools.

Augsburg (Germany) hosting the second project meeting

Meetings
Starting from Wednesday 4th, until the Friday 6th, the city of Augsburg will be hosting the partners of SORAPS for their second project meeting. The end of the first year of the project becomes closer and partners want to discuss about the challenges faced in this period in order to improve the implementation. Beside the management tasks that are constitutive part of project meetings, partners would like, in particular, to deepen the opportunities that this project offers in terms of exploitation, considering the relevance of the topic addressed at this particular historical moment in Europe and worldwide. In fact, stereotypes and prejudices not adequately addressed lead to an increase of intolerance that we are witnessing today. Education and cultural awareness, of children and youth in particular, are the main and…

SORAPS project presented during “Researcher’s night” event organized by Ca’Foscari University of Venice

Dissemination
The SORAPS Project has premiered on 29 September at the Researcher’s Night of Venice, an event of major importance within the larger European Researchers’ Night initiative promoted by the EU Commission. This round of events has been especially designed to disseminate the outputs of several research projects to the larger public and at the same time to raise awareness on the very same topics in the same day; within this context, the SORAPS project has been presented as another successful output of the long-lasting involvement of Ca’ Foscari in Religious and Intercultural Education thanks to EU funding, just like the previous IERS project was. The Researcher’s Night provided a nice opportunity to set out the overall aims of the project, as well as the ways SORAPS finds its place in…
