Abstract

The conservation of cultural heritage is directly proportional to the success of cultural transfer. For this purpose, in this study, sustainability is aimed by introducing the cultural heritage assets in Isparta to the students studying in the field of foreign language in high school, raising awareness and transferring these values to new generations. Before the trip, interviews were made with 33 students selected from high schools studying in the field of foreign language in Isparta, which was selected in the research, and their preliminary information about the cultural heritage assets in Isparta was asked and cultural heritages were introduced with a presentation. In this context, Dundar Bey Madrasa, Adada Ancient City, Aya Stefanos Church, Men's Temple, Egirdir Castle, Pisidia Antiokheia Ancient City and Saint Paul's Road and apple gardens in Isparta province were introduced and the civilizations that lived in these areas were expressed accompanied by a guide with Turkish and English explanations. Before the trip, students had little knowledge about tangible and intangible cultural heritage assets; after the trip, it was seen that their knowledge on the subject increased; the students stated that they would share the information they gained with their environment and that they would evaluate the guidance profession in their university department preferences.
