Teaching and Learning

Teaching takes place in lectures, seminars and small groups. Lectures give you the foundations of knowledge and guidance in interpretation. Small group teaching enables you to discuss historical topics in detail and to develop your skills in writing and analysis. Seminars are used to teach you to look more closely at evidence and arguments, and to refine your thinking and communication skills at an advanced level.

WRITING HISTORY, A WORKSHOP SERIES FOR SECOND AND THIRD YEAR UNDERGRADUATES 

The purpose of these workshops is to assist students to become aware of the processes involved in academic and critical writing. Each session will introduce students to a process employed in scaffolding successful academic writing: close reading, note taking, journal keeping, concept mapping, free writing, project drafting, project reviewing and managing the writing project. These workshops will be interactive and will encourage students to discuss writing as a process and to improve their writing skills through workshop exercises.

TEACHING HISTORY: SEMINARS FOR SCHOOL OF HISTORY TUTORS

The purpose of these sessions is to foster a community of practice for tutor-historians in the School of History. Once a month, tutors will meet to discuss teaching historical thinking and performance, for example, reflective teaching methods employed to facilitate undergraduates learning to interpret and use primary and secondary sources. Through moderated online discussion, during the intervening period, tutors will be encouraged to reflect on and to share their emerging philosophies for teaching history in higher education. These workshops are specific to the teaching of the discipline of history, but compliment the accredited university-wide modules in graduate education: 

PG6003: Teaching for Graduate Studies and PG6012: Scholarly Approaches to Teaching and Learning in Higher Education co-ordinated by Ionad Bairre: Centre of Teaching and Learning.
