Event Type: Workshop


A workshop to be held on Monday 18th to Tuesday 19th February 2013, at the Institute of Historical Research, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

We warmly invite secondary-school teachers and academics in English and History to join us for our workshop “The First World War in the Classroom”. This workshop, which is generously funded by the Higher Education Academy and hosted by the Institute of Historical Research, offers a fantastic opportunity to mingle with other teachers and researchers from across the UK, engage in Continued Professional Development, and share best practice. It comprises three keynote addresses by leading experts in the field of First World War Studies, a session on the use of new digital resources, and a variety of subject-specific breakout sessions.The event is supported by the English Association and the Historical Association.

“The First World War in the Classroom” is organised jointly by the universities of Exeter and Northumbria. The objective is to bring together secondary-school teachers and researchers who teach the First World War to discuss challenges, methods and topics in the light of the war’s centenary. The event is free of charge (including lunch and dinner). Schools wishing to send teachers to participate in the event will have to part cover travel and, if required, one night’s accommodation in London, but we anticipate being able to offer a subsidy of around £100 per participant towards travel and accommodation costs.

Venue: Senate House

The event is taking place in several rooms in Senate House.
