Add a talk


Dr Sara Wolfson, winner of the Times Higher Education Award for Most Innovative Teacher of the Year shares examples of her teaching practice.

This free workshop explores ideas of ‘good citizenship’ within undergraduate early modern history teaching, as a means by which to encourage deep learning of subject material and holistic development amongst students.

There will be two talks:

Professor Maureen Meikle, Leeds Trinity University: ‘To lecture or not to lecture? Using the Workshop Model within Undergraduate History Teaching at Leeds Trinity University’

Dr Sara Wolfson, Canterbury Christ Church University: ‘Teaching Innovation and Ideas of Good Citizenship within Early Modern History’

The workshop will be interactive with delegates experiencing a seminar reconstruction that uses Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library. The day will end with a ‘live’ student assessment, as delegates attend the launch of Sara’s second year student exhibition, Sex, Deviance and Death in Early Modern Britain. This event will be accompanied by a wine reception sponsored by Dr. Keith McLay, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

This workshop is aimed at scholars working in History and the Humanities more generally. It will be of particular interest to graduate teaching assistants, early career academics, teaching fellows, and lecturers. The workshop is designed to assist scholars who wish to explore different methods of teaching and assessment away from the traditional lecture model or essay assignment. People applying for Associate Fellowship, Fellowship or Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy may also find this workshop helpful.
