•Students learn to engage in debates and reflections from a multitude of angles and make connections between them.
•Students learn to use their creativity combined with the intellectual skills (reasoning, reflecting, and judgments) as described by the Academic Platform.
•Students develop a critical understanding of the European integration history. They are able to put this history in a long-term perspective using the lens of technology
•Students learn to contextualize objects/artefacts within their temporal and social context.

•Students are able to translate their understanding of European history into a short story (web essay) using critically a variety of sources
•Students learn to write essays for publication on the web, communicating clearly and to-the-point. 38 students, 8 groups, 8 themes, 8 tours photography
