In recent decades, the sustainable conservation of cultural heritage has become a crucial global challenge. The Faculty of Architecture of RWTH Aachen University has amassed its expertise in this field into a new online course called “Cultural Heritage in Transformation”. In the course, the learners are provided with the skills to define, explore, conserve, utilize and manage cultural heritage. Throughout the course, case studies drawn from the City of Aachen and beyond are used as examples.
The second run of the course is starting on October 14, 2019 on the e-learning platform edX. It is open to everyone and free of charge! For more information, visit the course page on edX: https://www.edx.org/course/cultural-heritage-in-transformation
