On 28-29 September the first JHP Teacher Training Workshop of the new second Αlbanian language edition, was completed in Berat, Albania.
Twenty-seven history teachers from a variety of primary and secondary schools gathered in the historic city of Berat, a Unesco Heritage Site. The purpose of their gathering was to learn new methods of teaching history within the framework of the Joint History Project.
Trainers Fatmiroshe Xhemalaj, Andi Pinari, and Helian Demiri encouraged the teachers to voice their opinions and present their arguments and thoughts. Following two days of presentations and group work, the seminar culminated with the CDRSEE disseminating teaching materials to all participants for future use. The thematic group work, presentations, and public discussions were well received by the history teachers, who worked hard at practicing the participatory teaching methodology endorsed by the Joint History Project in Southeastern Europe. All participants received certificates of attendance by the regional educational authorities and were appreciative of being introduced to alternative classroom methodologies and a multi-perspective approach at teaching that is reforming the way that history is being taught.
