The DELTA (Digital Excavation through Learning and Training in Archaeology) project is a transnational programme funded under Erasmus+ EU program (Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education) and is coordinated by the DAISSy research group of Hellenic Open University (daissy.eap.gr), bringing together 4 partners from 3 European countries (Greece, Italy and Czech Republic). The project started in October 2019 and has a duration of 30 months.
DELTA aims at the design and development of an open course through which students of Archaeology will be able to update their skills and develop new digital and 21st century skills. The project is innovative since it integrates the excavation site as an instructional tool in the classroom-based instruction of Archaeologists using digital means.
The course will support a blended learning process through an open, online-learning platform as well as face to face and on-site learning with a transnational mobility of students and their professors of Archaeology.
After the blended learning, selected students from each partner University with their Professor/educator will be able to be trained and work together in multinational groups and benefit from the knowledge and skills exchange in a joint excavation (Intensive Study Programme-ISP), in the historical place of Marathon, Greece.
DELTA will result in the design and development of a Teaching Handbook in four languages as well as the creation of Policy and good practices towards the application of new methods and modernization of excavation practice using the news technologies.
