Welcome to the first e-bulletin from History in the Higher Education Academy. The bulletins will be published every two months. The History subject team have had a busy summer developing our new website: www.historysubjectcentre.ac.uk. The website includes an e-library of searchable resources, our events diary, information on our current funding and research and much more… Please visit the new site and give us your feedback. The first departmental visit of the academic year took place on 7th September when Sarah Richardson facilitated a workshop on Improving Feedback and Employability & Enterprise for Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Ulster. Please contact us if you are interested in similar workshops.

The Impact of the Interactive Whiteboard on the Learning Experience of the Undergraduate Historian
This report looks at the impact of interactive whiteboards on the student learning experience. It is divided into three stages: Level I (entry and introduction to the study of history at university); Level II (development of key and subject specific skills); Level III (reflexivity and the higher order skills associated with critical analysis and source awareness).
