Event description

Description

This one-day event, organised by History UK and generously supported by Liverpool John Moores University, is designed to support an exchange of information between history teachers in schools and universities in order to enhance understanding about issues in inclusion and engagement in and between these two educational phases. Subjects will include, but are not limited to, discussions about BAME, sexuality, autism and civic engagement. The day has been built on a theory to practice model. In the morning, we will hear about findings from research on various aspects of inclusion and engagement. In the afternoon, practice-based sessions, with an accent on prompting participant discussion, will demonstrate how HE History teachers have supported students in their study at of history and associated subjects in both universities and schools.

Please register to attend this event [cost, which includes lunch, is £5]. Details of the room at Liverpool John Moores will be confirmed in May. We are grateful to Liverpool John Moores University which has given generous funding to support this event.
