End-of-project symposium

Saturday, 17th May 2014, 10.30am – 4pm, Institute of Education (main building), 20 Bedford Way, London, WC1H 0AL.

To mark the end of the active phase of The First World War in the Classroom, we will host a final event in London. Our project report will be published on this website at the end of May 2014, but we will present and discuss some of our findings at this event prior to its publication. In addition, we will have presentations on newly developed teaching and learning resources, as well as talks and discussion sessions on links between teaching the war and the centenary to date. Speakers are in the process of being finalised, but will include Charlie Keitch, Digital Learning Officer for the Imperial War Museums, and Dr Andrew Mycock (University of Huddersfield), whose research investigates the current centenary ‘History wars’. Places for the event are limited, but it is free of charge and includes lunch and refreshments. If you are traveling from outside of London, we may be able to assist you from our limited travel bursary fund.
