We will be holding the next Summer Institute in Historical Thinking in Toronto, Ontario. The Institute is open to all educators in classrooms, museums, libraries and archives, and/or community and cultural centres. As well, we welcome curriculum consultants and ministry of education officials. The course can be applied for credit to a graduate education degree.
The Summer Institute is an intensive six-day immersion in historical thinking and history education, with mornings spent in lectures and group work, and afternoons spent at various museums and places of historical interest.
Professor Peter Seixas and other distinguished guests will facilitate the exploration of his six historical thinking concepts. Participants will create lessons and projects for use in the classroom, as well as assessment tools. We will also explore how the concepts can be incorporated into museum installations and online archival resources.
As in previous years, a number of bursaries will be provided by our partner, The History Education Network/Histoire et Éducation en Réseau, to facilitate the participation of educators in the institute. Applications are due March 5, 2012, and are available at http://thenhier.ca/en/content/thenhier-funding-programs. We are grateful for this ongoing partnership.
