Description - Teaching History at University by Alan Booth
Teaching history is a substantive, intellectual task. As a form of scholarship it is as complex, challenging and creative as historical research, and it is vital to the future of the discipline. Teaching History at University examines how high-quality history teaching and learning can be achieved in today's universities worldwide. Alan Booth draws on a wide range of international research as well as the reflections and experiences of university historians, linking theory and practice. He provides a wealth of practical ideas and strategies for the classroom. The key to improvement, he argues, lies in understanding students and in reflection on teachers' own educational beliefs, values and assumptions. This is an essential resource for university teachers and all those who are responsible for ensuring the quality of teaching and learning policies and practices within their institutions.
