What does it mean to think historically?
Promoting historical understanding in classrooms of mixed abilities and diverse backgrounds and developing channels of communication with the wider community.
European Workshop, Nicosia, Cyprus, 25-28 September 2012
Working language: English.
The training will focus on the challenges of teaching history in a rapidly changing world and more specifically in classrooms with students of mixed abilities and diverse backgrounds. It will address amongst others questions such as Which pedagogical and methodological approaches will best facilitate the acquisition of the necessary knowledge, disciplinary historical concepts, abilities and relevant dispositions? and Why do teachers and students need to develop ‘big pictures’ of the past, find ways to connect pieces of knowledge in bigger groupings, expand their understanding of human development and identify elements of change and continuity over extended periods of time?
Target group: Teachers, teacher trainers, curriculum developers, history co-coordinators, representatives of non-governmental organisations active in the teaching of history.
