Teaching and Technology: Making Digital History

Liverpool John Moores University, 14th March 2015, 10am-4pm

From newsreels and newspapers to medieval manuscripts, in the last decade the number of primary sources available digitally has exploded. At the same time, there are increasing pressures on University History programmes to develop the ‘digital literacy’ of their students. This practical workshop will explore how we can use digital resources and methods of assessment – such as blogs, youtube videos, and wikis – to actively engage our students in the process of historical research. We will also explore the difficulties and practicalities of developing digital history modules, especially from the perspective of early-career historians. What are limits of what technology can achieve in the classroom? What skills do we need to develop in order to properly support our students? Please note that this is an interactive workshop: you will be asked to share and develop your own ideas as well as hear about the experiences of others.

Speakers include:
Dr Helen Rogers, Liverpool John Moores University/’Blogging Beyond the Classroom’ @blogging_beyond

Dr Jamie Wood, University of Lincoln/’Making Digital History’

Dr Bob Nicholson, Edge Hill University

Dr Kimm Curran, University of Glasgow
