Location: Wolfson Room, IHR

Time: 1pm-4pm

In a world where research projects are increasingly based around digital resources and technologies, historians can no longer ignore the potential that Online Research Training can provide for Higher Education teaching and for training of scholars, professionals and students. This workshop examines good practice for online training and reflects on both pedagogical issues and on technological benefits and limitations. In particular it focuses on the development by the IHR of the History SPOT platform (Seminar Podcasts and Online Training) which will soon be released as the Institute’s primary online platform for its Research Seminars and Training courses. The workshop also looks at the Open University’s recent development of an Online MA in History.

Please join us for an afternoon to discuss and debate about the benefits and limitations of online research training and to see behind the scenes on two recent projects that are attempting to expand what we can achieve and expect from digital course delivery.
