On 8th July, History Lab Plus will host an Advanced Teaching Skills
workshop for early-career historians hoping to obtain teaching posts in the
UK Higher Education Sector. The workshop aims to demystify the processes
involved in designing and delivering courses as part of a History BA degree
programme and to support early-career scholars as they make the transition
from postgraduate teaching to assuming the responsibilities of a
lectureship or other postdoctoral teaching post.
The workshop will cover:
Overview of the structure and organisation of History BA programmes,
including quality assurance and administrative responsibilities The
challenges and opportunities of taking up your first teaching job How to
design and deliver survey courses
How to bring your own research into teaching through developing special
subjects or modules The workshop will be led by Professor Matthew Cragoe
(Professor of Modern British History and Associate Dean of Humanities,
Education and Law, University of Hertfordshire) Dr Jon Lawrence (University
Lecturer in Modern British Political History, University of Cambridge) and
Dr Kate Bradley (Lecturer in Social History and Social Policy, University
of Kent). The format will be interactive and participatory, drawing on
examples of existing degree programmes and course curricula to aid
discussion, and focusing as far as possible on practical lessons and advice.
The event is free but places are limited to 20, so please rsvp as soon as
possible to reserve your place to Helen.firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note, this workshop is primarily intended for early career
