The Department of Humanities at the University of Roehampton has received some funding to host a workshop exploring the use of ePortfolios in teaching and assessing ‘traditional’ subjects (the examples used in the workshop will mainly be drawn from History and Classics). In particular, we will be looking at the use of PLEs (Personal Learning Environments) in supporting independent project work, improving study skills and enhancing employability. Details of the workshop can be found over here at the HEA website. The event is free and we have 30 places for interested delegates.
‘New approaches to the history of popular protest and resistance in Britain and Ireland, 1500-1900’ will take place at the University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, on Friday 1 July, 11am-4.30pm. More information on the website http://protesthistory2011.org.uk/ Lunch provided!
