Digital heritage training for historians in Europe: a local proposal

José-Antonio Ruiz Gil

Abstract

This paper presents a proposal for the use of digital resources to improve the university curriculum for historians in particular and heritage managers in general. It is possible to develop the sector, providing more employment and promoting theoretical and methodological changes conducive to mutual progress. To achieve this, the proposal takes into account the recent legal reforms in education and within the European Digital Single Market. However, although such changes are possible given that there is already extensive experience in heritage digitisation, they are hindered by the current curricula content and slow implementation of competency-based education. The desk research reported here focused on a Spanish context that could benefit from curriculum development implemented elsewhere, and the resulting proposal for positive action was explored in the context of history and heritage education at the University of Cadiz.
