March 2nd 2012
Thanks to generous HEA funding, a workshop will be held at Manchester Metropolitan University’s history department for teachers of North American history (based in any department).
This event will explore the use of visual and material resources in the teaching of North American history and will ask how we can develop our practice by learning from other disciplines, engage with a public history audience using these techniques, use museum exhibitions and memorials to enliven discussion and finally use documentary and feature films to trigger active rather than passive learning among students. Improving student experience and student learning will be the central focus of our discussions.
The workshop, like previous North American History teaching meetings, is designed to attract all levels of staff from postgraduate through to professor, recognising that teaching innovation can be driven by newcomers to the profession as well as more experienced practitioner.
This event is free to attend and tea/coffee and lunch will be provided. To register please email the organiser, Dr Catherine Armstrong:
