New to Teaching History 2022: An Interactive Workshop

20 July 2022

About the Workshop

Participants in this interactive online workshop, sponsored by the Royal Historical Society and History UK, will develop their understanding of key issues relating to teaching History in higher education, from innovations in teaching and learning and curriculum design to teaching seminar groups and giving lectures.

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. Participants should be prepared to engage actively in the sessions; we will be leaving plenty of time for questions and discussion!
