Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th July 2021 (2 x half-day events)
Participants in this two-day interactive online workshop, sponsored by History UK and the Royal Historical Society, will develop their understanding of key issues relating to teaching History in higher education, from innovations in teaching and learning (including the shift online during the pandemic) and curriculum design to teaching seminar groups and preparing for the academic job market.
All those who are new to teaching History in higher education – i.e. about to begin or recently-started – are eligible to apply, including PhD students, postdocs, ECRs and new lecturers. We welcome applicants from beyond the UK, although elements of the event will be tailored specifically to UK HE contexts. The workshop will be delivered by a group of experienced and innovative teachers of History in HE. There will be a blend of pre-recorded and ‘live’ presentations. Participants should be prepared to engage actively in the sessions; we will be leaving plenty of time for questions and discussion!
