Introduction (continued)

Are you helping or teaching others?

You might be a facilitator, an educator or a group leader. You may be helping a person or a group to identify or protect a heritage place. You could be running a class or course in an educational institution or you may just want to raise awareness about heritage issues. If so, this Website can help you.

If you are a teacher you can work through the sections of particular relevance to your studies and use the Have a Go tests as student exercises.

If you are a facilitator you might want to work through this site with your group over a period of time and a number of meetings. The Have a Go tasks can help your group apply what they are learning. For a real project, group members can be allocated tasks around the Have a Go activities to undertake between meetings.

A training kit containing a range of presentation tools for people who are helping or wanting to teach others is being developed. It includes:

  • The book Protecting Local Heritage Places - A guide for communities
  • A CD-ROM containing the Website and other key documents
  • A folder of paper-based materials
  • A PowerPoint presentation
  • Overhead transparencies
  • 35mm slides

More about the kit will appear soon at this Website.
