I42 - Time Traveller

Approaching History as an historian.

History is all around us. There is history on every horizon. How well do you exploit local History? Take a trip back in time with us.... well, at least a course back in time! Exploring the past, our course is loaded with exciting approaches, ideas and resources to bring back to the classroom in September to stimulate, charge and support your ‘trips in History’, as children work as junior historians, uncovering the secrets of the past.

This self-paced on-line course explores the subject of History in the primary school curriculum as an attempt to reconstruct and interpret the past through working as an historian. Participants will appreciate that successful teachers of history use a broad range of classroom approaches and methodologies and will engage with aspects of all strands of the prescribed history curriculum.

The on-line format of the course enables you to study when and where you want to learn. Content is divided into 5 modules which you can complete in any order at any time.
Participants are encouraged to interact with one another using the communication tools (forum, chat, e-mail) provided by the CPD College learning system. Active facilitation throughout the course provides expert interaction, guidance and feedback for all participants. Assignments and questions which call for critical reflection, self-analysis and a reasoned response punctuate this highly interactive web based course.
On completion of this course each participant can download their CPD record and Certificate of completion. The Certificate of completion demonstrates your achievement in completing this professional development course.
