Making sense of history seeks to strengthen research on history pedagogy by furthering cooperation between history education practice and research. Scholars and practitioners interested in the pedagogy of history will give short presentation and organize longer workshops that address the learning, teaching and researching of history in schools, universities, and, more generally, society. Participants include teachers who specialise in history and social science education, as well as graduate students and scholars.

Workshops and presentations address for example the following themes:

How do we teach historical thinking and skills-based history to students?
How can educators support the teaching and learning of skills-based history and historical thinking?
How to teach multiliteracies in history?
What kinds of skills are needed in learning history and developing historical thinking?
How can new platforms (social media, digital archives, etc.) support the development of historical thinking?
How can we assess students’ historical thinking and its development?
What innovative pedagogical methods exist for teaching history?
Over the course of this two-day conference, scholars, teachers and practitioners will share their research findings, offering examples of cutting-edge approaches and engaging in dynamic discussions that will help nurture intercultural dialogue and bridge scholarly and practical questions.
