Teaching History in Higher Education Conference
Wed, 13 Sep 2017, 09:30 – Thu, 14 Sep 2017, 17:30 BST
CALL FOR PAPERS: full details available on the events pages of the Royal Historical Society and the Institute of Historical Research, London.
How can we move towards excellence in teaching history in higher education? How can we support both students and staff using research-informed teaching? In what ways can we use pedagogic theory and research in order to engage learners at all levels? What opportunities are there to teach across and into other disciplines? How do we support students through critical transition points and intellectual thresholds? What innovative practice can inform our teaching?
This conference seeks to address these questions and, in doing so, explore theory and practices in teaching, learning and assessment in critical areas such as public history education; the use of digital and other new technologies; the relationship between school and university history; pedagogic theory, practice and the student experience; ethical dimensions and the teaching of ‘controversial’ subjects; learning outside the classroom; employability and work-based learning; policy, policy-makers and strategy. Papers, workshops and panel discussions will provide opportunities to showcase evidence-informed practise from the higher education sector, facilitate discussion and debate and, importantly, provide networking opportunities for participants.
