Website under redevelopment – July 2020

Welcome Making Digital History! This website is  maintained by Jamie Wood, Associate Professor of History in the School of History and Heritage at the University of Lincoln.

Making Digital History focuses on three areas:

  1. Active and student-centred pedagogies, especially those in which students engage in creative work and/or knowledge production (Making);
  2. Digital tools and approaches to support academic and student engagement in such pedagogies (Digital).
  3. History teaching and learning in higher education (History).

Originally based on a number of technology-related teaching projects funded by the Higher Education Academy (and others) in 2012-14, Making Digital History hosts a number of resources for using technology to teach history in higher education, especially in developing student-centred approaches to learning.

The website will be divided into four thematic sections, each of which represents a key element of my practice and conceptualisation of active online History pedagogy:

Eventually, each of these sections will include a short literature review with links to projects, completed and ongoing. I’ll upload a lot of the resources that have been created during these projects, including some work done by students. There are also links to presentations, other dissemination activities and publications.
