The 17th EUROCLIO Annual International Professional Development Conference “A Bridge Too Far? Teaching Common European History, Themes, Perspectives and Levels” will take place on March 22-28 2010 in the vicinity of Nijmegen, a rich in historical heritage city, in the Eastern part of the Netherlands. From September 2009 the official Canon of 50 windows to Dutch History and Culture is compulsory for all pupils from 9 to 15. In 2010 the the Association of Teachers in History and Political Science in the Netherlands, VGN, wants to explore with colleagues from all over Europe if this approach can be used as a model for a European Canon. The EUROCLIO Conference will explore a set of common topics in European History: Roman Times, Christianity and Islam, Industrial Revolution, Second World War, Cold War Period and aim to evaluate existing Dutch and international teaching materials for school history in design, pedagogic practice, assessment opportunities and professional implications.
