MEDINA 2nd training session

The second training course organized within the project MEDINA took place in Beirut-Lebanon, in the laboratories of the American University of Beirut, on the 12th and 13th of April 2013.
Indeed the project aims to involve and train young generations in Jordan and Lebanon through training courses, seminars and didactic activities in universities, schools and museums, in order to have a common understanding of best practices and procedures of digitization and dissemination of cultural heritage.
The training course was attended by fourteen students of the American University of Beirut, the Lebanese University and the Balamand University.
The team composed by Dr. Daniele Marotta e Dr. Irene Rossi, from the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, with the support of Dr. Alison Kumro of GAIA Heritage and the monitoring of the University of Pisa, taught students best practices for digitization of inscriptions and digital cataloguing of archaeological findings.
The DASI data model and the procedures of insertion of data into the last version of the online tool  were explained. Thanks to their quick learning, trainees could soon practice the digitization of some Phoenician artefacts and inscriptions hosted in the National Museum of Beirut and obtain the certificate of the course’s attendance.
