History UK Pedagogy Forum: The ‘New Normal’? Teaching History ‘After COVID-19’

Date / time: 25 January, 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

January 2023 marks the launch of History UK’s new ‘Pedagogy Forum’ – a series of online events designed to motivate 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.

We have some timely and interesting events lined up for 2023, our first discussion is:

The ‘New Normal’? Teaching History ‘After COVID-19’. (25th January 2023, 2.30 pm – 4:00 pm)

Though it is difficult to say that the pandemic is over, with less COVID-19 restrictions on campuses many history departments began transitioning ‘back to normal’ – returning to forms and methods of in-person teaching that have long been a feature of history programmes in HE. Others retained or adapted elements from ‘pandemic pedagogy’. At the same time, there are innovative pedagogical practices being engaged in. In this session, we will explore the state of the field, interrogating the new opportunities and challenges we face as part of the ‘new normal.’

Contributors include:

Dr Cath Feely (University of Derby) and Dr Lucie Matthews-Jones (Liverpool John Moores University): Creative History in the Classroom

Dr Professor Jamie Wood (University of Lincoln) and Dr Marcus Collins (Loughborough University):
Post-Pandemic Pedagogy Project
