This meeting on 26 April 2008 at Savill Court Hotel in Egham (UK) is devoted to developing specific ways of using cutting-edge Humanities research—especially new research on early modern Europe—in the classroom. The conveners invite scholars of English, History, Theatre, and Media studies, as well as secondary school educators in the public and private sector, to engage in discussions and workshops dedicated to the development of specific lesson plans that adapt current research in these areas to the needs and aims of today’s educators in the Humanities.
University and secondary school educators are invited to share their work and work-in-progress, or analyses of this work, regarding the use of new media and performance-based activities in the classroom. These workshops and discussions will be informed by lesson plans already under development by members of the MaPs consortium based at McGill University (http://makingpublics.mcgill.ca). The aim is to enhance these plans, to share others, and to brainstorm ideas for new ones.
