The Historical Thinking Summer Institute (July 7-12, 2014) is designed for teachers, graduate students, curriculum developers and museum educators who want to enhance their expertise at designing and teaching history courses and programs with explicit attention to historical thinking. Peter Seixas, director of the Centre for the Study of Historical Consciousness and author, with Tom Morton, of "The Big Six Historical Thinking Concepts," will lead the Institute, in collaboration with the Museum of Vancouver, where the Institute will be held. Course credit is offered through the University of British Columbia. Participants will explore substantive themes of aboriginal-settler relations and human-nature relations over time. A limited number of travel bursaries are available on a competitive basis (see http://thenhier.ca/en/content/thenhier-funding-programs).
