The workshops, funded under the IPA programme of the European Commission, welcomed 20 teachers and provided them with an opportunity to learn about the JHP methodologies and familiarise themselves with the workbooks. The participants were assisted in creating their own model lessons based on the training, so as to consolidate their new skills for further use in class.
As with all the JHP workshops, the training aimed at allowing history teachers to provide their pupils with participative, balanced and critical lessons, to foster tolerance and mutual understanding among the next generation of SEE citizens. The workshops, implemented in cooperation with the Bureau for Education Services, were moderated by Vanja Vukovic. They were guided by prominent Montenegrin historian Zivko Andrijasevic, historian and one of the two editors of the Montenegrin language edition - Dragutin Papovic, Professor of Psychology Vesna Milovic, Professors of history Vesna Kovacevic and Ljiljana Bajcetic. Also present was Cristina Koulouri, series editor of the JHP workbooks and Chair of the History Education Committee (HEC) of the CDRSEE.
