The European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage (AEPJ), Jewish Heritage Network (JHN), and izi.TRAVEL are announcing an intensive summer training on developing self-guided audio tours. This practical, result-oriented course is intended for Jewish heritage practitioners, independent guides, teachers, curators and tourism operators. It will consist of 5 online sessions, each 1.5 hours long, and be delivered by top experts in the field.
The training is developed and offered under the auspices of the Jewish History Tours project funded by the European Commission and coordinated by JHN. While project partners are the main target audience, others are most welcome to participate. Registration is required. As part of the training participants will be encouraged to develop their own tours and present them to fellow participants and instructors. The best tours will be presented at the final session and promoted by the project.
The course will take place via 5 Zoom sessions on consecutive Thursdays starting July 22 and ending August 19, 2021 and will cover four core topics of self-guided tour development and promotion delivered by Egor Yakovlev, Co-Founder of izi.TRAVEL. In addition, each session will feature a guest speaker presenting a relevant, innovative example of touristic experience or technology, or a complementary subject.
