A call for papers
With the support of Academy Travel, HTA NSW have invited British history educator Christine Counsell to present both a Keynote Address and Workshop at this Symposium. Christine’s Keynote is entitled ‘Evaluating the Legacy of the 1970s/1980s Revolution in History Education’ and her Workshop will focus on ‘What happens to pupils’ historical thinking when they know more and how do we make it happen?’
At this event HTA NSW are hoping to promote broad discussion and reflection around history pedagogy and curriculum, with a particular goal being to bring together classroom practitioners and pre- service teacher educators. Proposals on the following areas will be considered: historical thinking, source based assessment in Ancient and Modern history, historiography of history education, teaching Indigenous history, primary history teaching, supporting innovation, disciplinary v generic approaches, technology, literacy, creativity, critical thinking or any other aspect of history pedagogy, curriculum and assessment
