The DariahTeach project is a consortium of seven universities and research centers across Europe aiming to develop an open-source, high quality, multilingual reference curriculum for the digital arts and humanities. Receiving an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership grant, the DariahTeach will strengthen alliances and foster innovative teaching and learning practices among members of the ESFRI-roadmap Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH).

Starting on 1 January 2015 with duration of two and a half years, this project will feature flexible, localized curriculum materials as well as a central, modular portal that will host, deliver and maintain those materials. The portal will also support the development of new curricula materials and the sustainability of the project after the grant period has ended. The DariahTeach represents the first openly accessible Digital Humanities curriculum of its kind and will serve as a model for creating and delivering open-source asynchronous online educational materials, from which other communities can benefit.

“Athena” Research Centre and especially the Digital Curation Unit, as part of this consortium, is leading Work Package 2 on User Requirements & Benchmarking of Key Competencies. Its goal is to gather the user requirements that will inform the development of the reference curriculum and benchmarking of key competencies, as well as the portal that will house these learning objects.
