The digital learning world of the Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (EVZ) provides interactive digital educational formats, promotes networking and encourages engagement – all on the subjects of the EVZ Foundation.
The platform is a digital offering of the EVZ Academy expanded, which develops contemporary formats for the Foundation's work. With the digital learning platform, the EVZ Foundation invites people to learn together and individually and also to network.
The EVZ Foundation stands for innovative educational approaches and compelling stories, contacts with people you want to listen to and with organizations that reappraise history and sometimes write history themselves – for example, when they reach a broad public, have an impact on a professional audience or win awards. The new platform bundles all this added value. It therefore provides more than new content. It links the results from the Foundation's work and the projects it funds, as well as committed and interested people, with each other.
In this way, the EVZ Academy's digital learning world connects to the strategic goals of the EVZ Foundation’s Agenda for the Future and incorporates the findings of the MEMO Remembrance Monitor constructively into its educational approaches. Transnational and location-independent educational spaces are created which, in memory of National Socialist injustice, develop new forms for historical learning in the present and for societies that are equipped for the future.
This learning platform is suitable for anyone working in the EVZ Foundation's subjects.
The main topics of the platform are in particular:
In the course of the coming years, interactive online offerings will be developed for on these topics, complementing the funding activities of the EVZ Foundation.
The online and blended learning offerings are also aimed at a diverse range of target groups: The interactive offers impart skills for action; they induce people from different contexts, including professionals, to stand up for democratic values themselves.
The learning platform is a separate area in the EVZ Foundation's website. Each user will find the essential learning and interaction offers there on the EVZ Foundation's main topics explained in a structured and sequential way.
The formats are just as diverse as the possibilities of a digital learning world: Simple texts help to grasp complex content very quickly. Videos and audio provide low-barrier access to the topics. Tutorials, webinars, online meet ups and forums encourage and require interaction. Blended learning formats combine the strengths of different formats.
The digital EVZ Academy thus offers plenty of opportunities for contemporary exchange and networking on the Foundation's themes and to make the acquisition of knowledge more effective, interactive and flexible. Here are some of the opportunities that the EVZ Foundation prospectively provides:
This wide range of functions will be set up progressively over the next few years in order to realize the EVZ Foundation's educational mission on a sustainable basis and to strengthen spaces for networking.
The digital EVZ Academy was launched in May 2023. A test phase with selected pilot formats is currently underway. The service will be made available to the public from 2024.
