Updates on workshops

Having received many brilliant workshop proposals, we are pleased to announce that we’ve selected workshops ranging from history and citizenship education, to experiences of dealing with the violent past, as well as remembering and learning about 1916 in a multi-perspective way.

New programme elements

The conference programme has been taking very good shape. Aside an interesting and wide array of key-note speeches – from the Northern Ireland Minister for Education as well as several prominent historians – we’ve aimed at a great diversity in the choice of study visits. Aside from schools of different types and levels, this year’s study visits will also cover Ministerial curriculum development centres and museums.  More new programme elements are in the making. The preliminary programme and the information package are available for download below.

Opportunity to exhibit

The conference offers the opportunity to present your projects, resources, textbooks etcetera during the international fair.

Pub quiz and final festive dinner in the historical City Hall

As is tradition, this year too there will be a competitive and exciting pub-quiz! And, this time, it will actually be hosted in a real pub due to the efforts of the Students Union of Queens University Moreover, as we informed you before, we will close off the conference in style with a festive dinner and reception at the beautiful and historic Belfast City Hall.
