This seminar will disseminate the findings of the Historical Thinking Extension Grant.
This project embraced several objectives. The key element in the first phase was structuring the History curriculum in a way which scaffolds the development of Threshold Learning Outcomes (TLOs), with a particular focus on developing skills in the use of primary sources. The next phase focused on developing assessments which support the TLOs and which demonstrate their mastery by students over a three-year undergraduate course.
The Project Leaders, Michael Sturma and James Trotter, from the School of Arts, have worked with Murdoch history staff over a series of 6 seminars. In addition, the project hosted several seminars from two interstate academics: Associate Professor Jennifer Clark from the University of New England, and Professor Jill Roe, Professor Emerita at Macquarie University.
Date: Friday 16 August, 2.30-3.30pm, followed by wine and cheese and an opportunity to network with colleagues.
Venue: FTLR 4th floor North Wing Library, 4.040, Murdoch University
This event is open to academic staff from cognate disciplines at all WA universities, as well as being suitable for staff interested in curriculum renewal or OLT Extension Grants.
