Background and working sources
A paper reader with the most useful texts will be provided at the first summer meeting; the e-version of reader will be sent via e-mail or/and provided on the secured web-site of the project. Participants are expected to read it in intersession period so that they will be ready for the discussions and can use the texts for their own courses and share with students.

Assignments to be completed by the participants before, during or based on the results of the activity.
On the base of the first session results we expect more number of presentations for Spring Session from participants. We hope that presentations will help to improve syllabus, to accommodate new teaching techniques and experience and to move on the work with planned volume of papers.
Also we expect that the small working groups will be built as a result of the first contact session, according to the thematic preferences and/ or regional locality of the participants. The goal of small group activity is the realizing of small sub-project, which is relevant to preparing of their chapter for the planned volume of papers. The separate web-page for every small group's activity will be created on the project's web-site.
