Thursday 11thJuly 2019

Liverpool John Moores University (John Foster room tbc)

This one-day event, organised by History UK, is designed to support an exchange of information between history teachers in schools and universities in order to enhance understanding about issues in inclusion and engagement between these two educational phases.  Subjects will include, but are not limited to discussions about BAME, sexuality, autism and civic engagement.  The day has been built on a theory to practice model.  In the morning, we will hear about findings from research on various aspects of inclusion and engagement.  In the afternoon, practice-based sessions, with an accent on prompting participant discussion, will demonstrate how HE History teachers have supported students in their study at of history and associated subjects in both universities and schools.
