January 2023 marks the launch of History UK’s new ‘Pedagogy Forum’ – a series of online events designed to encourage discussions about the teaching of History in British universities.
We hope the Forum will offer opportunities for critical reflection on the ways we teach, and that it can function as an accessible space in which a diverse range of educators from across higher education can share insights, experiences, and points of best practice.
Our first forum, The ‘New Normal’? Teaching History ‘After Covid-19’, is on 25 January 2023, 2:30-4:00pm.
It will explore the state of the field, exploring new opportunities and challenges we face.
Contributors include Dr Cath Feely (University of Derby) and Dr Lucie Matthews-Jones (Liverpool John Moores University) talking about their Creative History in the Classroom Project and Professor Jamie Wood (University of Lincoln) and Dr Marcus Collins (Loughborough University) talking about their Post-Pandemic Pedagogy Project.
Everyone is welcome.
For more information, please visit the History UK website.
While we have some exciting events already scheduled, we are very keen for this to be an open and collaborative endeavour and, as such, warmly welcome ideas and expressions of interest for future events. We are open to different formats (including research papers, reading groups, and roundtables), and are eager to offer a platform to colleagues from a variety of backgrounds, institutions, and career stages.
Please email Dr Sarah Jones and Dr Sarah Holland with ideas and suggestions.
