Teaching History, Learning History, Promoting History

Über das Buch

The objective of this volume is to reflect on and to enhance history teaching in higher education. Informed by the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL), historians from the United States, Western Europe, and Australia report on their approaches and the results of their work with students, asking questions important for the future of the humanities as a whole: What understandings of history do students bring to their studies? How do these affect their approaches to history? What forms of teaching can help beginning students learn to think like historians and apply theory to their work? And how can we help history students succeed after university?

In diesem Band wird geschichtswissenschaftliche Lehre an Hochschulen  reflektiert und weiterentwickelt. Im Sinne des Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) stellen Historikerinnen und Historiker aus den USA, Australien und Westeuropa Ansätze und Ergebnisse ihrer Arbeit mit Studierenden vor: Welches Verständnis von Geschichte bringen Studierende mit, und wie beeinflusst es ihr Studierverhalten? Wie lässt sich die Studieneingangsphase so gestalten, dass Studierende sich geschichtswissenschaftliche Arbeits- und Denkweisen aktiv aneignen können? Wie lässt sich die Arbeit mit Theorien in der Geschichte vermitteln? Und wie können wir Studierende beim Berufseinstieg unterstützen?
