Identities in European history -course ends. The course turned to be a great success with many lively and interesting discussions. In the last phase of the course, students had the opportunity to discuss with Dr. Teija Tiilikainen, who was a member of Finnish delegation working with the European Constitution. As an expert, Dr. Tiilikainen commented on students’ group presentations. The course will be evaluated externally by researchers at KPH (Karlsruhe Pädagogische Hochschule). A report will be available online at the beginning of April 2006.

Identities in European History. The pilot course of the project begins. We ended up having 73 students from 15 universities attending. The students were divided into six subgroups for their first study phases. There was great enthusiasm in the groups from the very beginning! Students were considering especially important the chance to study in an international setting.
