In the second phase of the project (2019-2020) we will test the developed products of the innovative master module “Managing Cultural Heritage in Tourism” through different teaching and training activities.

We will organize 4 “Intensive Study programmes” where students with professionals will develop in groups case studies related to cultural heritage and tourism. These Intensive Study programme will happen in the 4 universities involved and with experts from the particular tourism and cultural heritage sites in their region.

The ISP will promote peer-learning approaches and will allow the creation of the case studies. These will be created on the basis of the didactic material developed during the project. As a reminder, no frontal teaching is foreseen, reason why peer-learning approaches will expressly be promoted in the 4 ISP.

Involvement of the experts will allow to share experiences between the academic and the professional world and will bring an added value for the future implementation of the case studies in real working situations. It will also create networks for the students and will serve as “ice breaking” between them and the experts invited.


Students will develop skills in organising and planning the learning activity, working collaboratively with each other’s, giving and receiving feedback and evaluating their own learning outcomes.

The case studies will be presented in a real working situation, as they will be the result of a work the students made without tutors or lecturers, relying only on their own skills, abilities and team working.

2 professionals will be invited to evaluate the case studies and the developed materials before real implementation.

At the end of the project, the 2 best case studies will be awarded officially. They will be vote by students, lectures and experts that will have participated in the ISPs.

These Intensive Study Programmes will take place in in October 2019 in Aveiro (PT) and Dalarna (Sweden) and in November 2019 in Stralsund (Germany) and Bergamo (Italy).
