The third and final TEACH FOR FUTURE project Mentoring Campus took place from 6 to 10 June at the American Farm School’s “Dimitris and Aliki Perrotis” Library in Thessaloniki, Greece.
During the session which was coordinated by HERITΛGE, the librarians of the American Farm School presented the history of the Foundation and ways of utilizing its Historical Archive for the educational process, as well as their educational activities and initiatives. The head of the library, Damiana Koutsomiha, talked about the role of librarians in the new digital age and coordinated a workshop entitled “Time Management for Librarians”.
40 beneficiaries from Greece, Bulgaria, and Romania, were selected from more than 300 people who participated in the individual local educational activities of the program. They had the opportunity to practice and broaden their skills in innovation management and networking, to further enhance their ability to develop new innovative products/services, and to use the right collaboration tools, in line with technological developments and requirements of the labor market.
The campus was organized by HERITΛGE, in collaboration with the Romanian National Association of Librarians and Public Libraries (ANBPR) and Global Libraries – Bulgarian Foundation, with the support of the American School of Agriculture and the International Hellenic University and under the guidance of Dr. Emmanuel Garoufallos , President of the Department of Library, Archives and Information Systems of the International University of Greece.
*TEACH FOR FUTURE program is co-funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+.
