This event focuses on Historical Enquiry and its value and use as a tool for developing teaching and learning in school history with pupils in the secondary age range (11-19 years).
The event is the first of a series of three seminars taking place in the 2016-17 academic year exploring these issues. There will be one event each term.
The first seminar will consist of three presentations as follows:
- Neither 'Discovery Learning' nor 'Direct Instruction'? Locating 'enquiry' in contemporary debates on learning and Instruction. Dr Arthur Chapman, UCL Institute of Education.
“Like a really good book and you want to know more”: Historical Enquiries and their impact in secondary schools. Abdul Mohamud and Dr Robin Whitburn, UCL Institute of Education.
- Historical Enquiry and history education: a personal journey. Dr Michael Riley, Director, The Schools History Project.
The event is free and all are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be provided.
Please note that booking is essential as places are limited.
