Website under redevelopment – July 2020
Making Digital History focuses on three areas:
- Active and student-centred pedagogies, especially those in which students engage in creative work and/or knowledge production (Making);
- Digital tools and approaches to support academic and student engagement in such pedagogies (Digital).
- 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.
