Artefacts, Creativity, Technology, and Skills from Prehistory to the Classical Period in Greece

We welcome you to join the new educational project funded by the 4EU+ Alliance, the first archaeological project integrating teachers and students from four 4EU+ Universities: Heidelberg, Charles, Copenhagen and Warsaw. The project is entitled ‘Artefacts, Creativity, Technology, and Skills from Prehistory to the Classical Period in Greece. Communities of Learning in the Past and in Higher Education Today’ (ACTS) and it has been designed as a new platform of innovative research-based teaching among the four partner universities.

The main emphasis of the new project is on novel advances in archaeological theory and analytical methods for exploring human creativity, technology, and skills through artefacts in Greece from the Bronze Age to the Classical Period, a joint lecture and four seminar-courses are offered by Heidelberg (UH), Copenhagen (CPHU ), Prague (CU) and Warsaw (UW). The entire programme will end in the summer semester (online, hybrid and in person) and a summer school in Athens (with 5 places for students from each partner university who participated in the project).

ATTENTION! Problems with USOS

Dear Students, Dear Colleagues,

Due to the inconsistencies in USOS class schedules reported today (October 4) by both students and lecturers, I would like to inform you about the problems we have no control over. It seems that your USOSweb incorrectly presents the users of the plan, while from the administrative USOS side, nothing has changed, and the data is correct. We will try to clarify the situation if it persists after the data migration tonight.

Nevertheless, I would like to remind you that classes are held following the information on the scheduled dates of classes (those in USOS seem to work correctly, errors are only in the weekly plans of students and lecturers). Any cancellations and changes to plans are announced via the website archeologia.uw.edu.pl and/or via university e-mail.

I sincerely apologize for this situation.

Sincerely,

Elżbieta Jaskulska
acting Vice-Dean for Student Affairs
The Faculty of Archeology of the University of Warsaw
