Registration Open for Our AGM and Future Directions Event – 14th September 2022

Future Directions of University History Degree Programmes and the EMC

Online Event – Wednesday 14th September 2022 – 10am – 3:30pm

Deadline for suggestions for discussion and panel workshops: 1st September 2022

We need your views and ideas!

We’re delighted to announce that Northampton is the new host of the East Midlands Centre for History Teaching and Learning in HE!

Our inaugural event is designed to tackle some of the most pressing issues EMC members are facing, both now and in the future. We want to know how the EMC can support you!

What directions do you think we should be taking in response to the changing nature of History degrees and our new QAA Benchmark Statement for History? What are the concerns and challenges facing new researchers and university History teachers?

This event is not a traditional academic conference or standard video-call AGM: it is designed to be as a workshop and discussion forum. We want to hear from as many EMC members as possible, both established researchers and those newer to postgraduate historical research and teaching!

Participants will be able to opt for a number of suggested topics or discussion themes. We will then respond and arrange the event based on these. This feedback will then be used to help structure the EMC’s activities over the coming years.

There will be a number of ways to contribute and get your voice heard both before, and during, the event. You can either come on microphone during the event, use a monitored chat function, post to a discussion board, or email comments and materials in advance or during the workshop to the organizers. We want people to be able to contribute in whatever way they would like to.

How can I get Involved?
