|Description||In recent years history teachers have become very skilled at bringing historical sources into the classroom and teaching students how to undertake historical enquiries but have we been as successful in getting our students to talk and write as historians do? This eCPD course aims to help you to do just that by bringing the historian into your classroom. Once you have got them there your students will need your help to explore how historians communicate what they think and know about the past through both the spoken and written word; and that is exactly what this course will help you to do. Once equipped with this understanding your students will then be better equipped to communicate what they think and know about history. It will run for four weeks from September to October 2012|

The course will run over four weeks. Each week there will be a variety of individual and collaborative activities, both online and back in your school, supported by a discussion forum. Each week is planned to take you up to five hours to successfully complete and it will allow you some flexibility on when and where you complete the activities. The course design draws upon the latest research into the design and practice of elearning. It has been written, and will be led, by Dave Martin who has extensive experience of both getting students to write as historians and of teaching adults online.
An evaluation of a recent course run by Dave said, ‘I really enjoyed working online, it was a fantastic opportunity to work with other teachers far and wide. It can be difficult to make these important connections during term time. It also allowed us time to engage in conversation with each other. It was also good to be able to pick and choose when we wanted to work and how much time we would spend which can be more difficult in more traditional CPD courses.’
