Description
An advanced, professional-development course designed to cultivate the participants’ capacity for competitiveness, creativity and innovative thinking, and provide them with the means to mark themselves out in an increasingly homogenised world.
Today’s society is undergoing a process of profound, constant and rapid change.
The group of people we interact with regularly is increasingly “international” and the multicultural nature of our towns and cities is more evident than ever. This diversity not only conditions the way we live, it transforms our very cultural traditions, and learning to keep our own traditions intact, while accommodating and even welcoming these processes, requires a creative, innovative approach. We believe
such originality is, in itself, a competitive advantage that can help individuals grow, in business and in their careers.
The Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore – in the form of the Studium Florentinum initiative
– and Università Cattolica del sacro Cuore of Milan have joined forces to address these issues in the form of an executive master’s programme. Taught in English, this advanced, one-year cultural-managerial course draws on a broad base of humanities and social science subjects, including economics, to provide participants with cross-discipline experience and working methodologies that can be applied to a large range of careers and professional contexts. The Master’s Degree
is delivered by Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore.

Description
Athabasca University’s Heritage Resources Management Program will be offering a new course, Industrial Heritage, for the upcoming winter semester from January to April 2018 (14 weeks online and one week in-person).

Participants will start the training online by learning about theoretical frameworks as they relate to conservation, interpretation, and management planning of industrial heritage. During the week of March 25-31, 2018, participants will have the opportunity to work in team on a project at St. Albert’s Grain Elevator Park (Alberta). Please be advised that attending this one-week in-residency component is required in order to successfully complete the course.
This training makes participants familiar with the principle characteristics of the industrial heritage and the array of tools and techniques used for its study, care, and use. The practical application of techniques in the analysis and documentation of industrial sites is a fundamental aspect of industrial heritage education, and beside the online component of the course, participation in one-week in residence project forms a central part of the training.

Participants will be able to analyze historic industrial artifacts, sites, and landscapes and identify and demonstrate industrial heritage’s most significant elements. They will exercise skills to develop management policies for heritage planning, sustainable repurposing and urban regeneration, research, museum collections and historic interpretation, and cultural tourism.
Everyone is welcome to register in this course. Participants can take the course either as part of their university studies (3 credits) or for professional development (as a non-program student).
Note: The course registration deadline is December 1, 2017.
