TEESAEC investigates students' conceptions of the European Union and their understandings of their roles and identities as EU citizens. The project aims to identify the knowledge and skills necessary for students to fulfil their role as active European and cosmopolitan citizens.
A set of Web-based teaching materials will be produced and tested to support teachers in their role as European Citizenship educators. University researchers will work in partnership with teachers from local schools.
