Outreach

Our outeach programmes are designed to inspire the next generation of historians, provide support for teachers, and engage with the wider community.

Re-Sourcing History

This website has been created specifically to help support both teachers and students in the study of History. You will find a continuously expanding range of source booklets related to specific A-level topics. The site also hosts a set of booklets written to support those undertaking Extended Project Qualifications and/or coursework, and an ever-growing series of podcasts in which our researchers share their expertise on topics directly linked to key A-level questions. Over time we will add more content to the site in the form of recorded taster lectures, advice and guidance on completing UCAS applications and writing effective personal statements, and CPD materials for History teachers.

Taster lectures

You can explore the sorts of areas we specialise in by research themeperiod and placeindividual staff profiles, or by examining the list of our modules.
If you would like to invite one of our scholars to your school/college to deliver a lecture on one of these topics, or wish to enquire about bringing a group of students to our campus to hear one of our scholars speak, email us at HistoryOutreach@soton.ac.uk

Teacher CPD

We are happy to work with teachers in schools and colleges, and can offer the following workshops and activities to help with continuing professional development:

Campus visit – Staff are welcome to visit our campus to sit in our core lectures, or to make special arrangements to attend specific classes taught by members of the department.

Library visit – Need access to new books or journals to prepare content for teaching, or for course work assignments? Contact us and we can make arrangements for a single member of staff, or your whole department to spend the day using our library and resources as our guests.

Re-sourcing History workshop – Want some new source material to use in your teaching? We can organise workshops to discuss what sort of material is available, discuss how best to access it, and share examples of the source material we have collected for our own teaching and research. These workshops can be hosted on our campus, or within your own schools/colleges.

EPQ/coursework workshop – We can arrange workshops in which we discuss ways to help students manage large research projects, from picking titles, to managing time, conducting primary source research, and writing up their findings.

Post-graduate study – The ultimate continuing development. Explore our postgraduate offerings, both at Masters and PhD level.

Personalised request – If there is anything else you think we could do to help you and your colleagues please do not hesitate to contact us.
