26th EUROCLIO Annual Conference and Professional Development and Training Course

April 4 - April 7

It is safe to assume that history educators like learning history and want to know more. As a result, they develop a deep historical knowledge, which helps them to make meaningful connections, see new information in its historical context and ask questions to guide research and reading. Students of history do not necessarily have these advantages, and also did not always choose to learn history. This leads to one of the key challenges for history educators: How to interest all students in learning history? How to bring history to life? Want to learn more? Come to the 26th EUROCLIO Annual Conference in Gdańsk, Poland, from 4-7 April 2019!

Feel free to read more about the background and theme of the Conference here.

The programme of this year's Annual Conference is gradually taking shape. Some elements, however, are fixed EUROCLIO Conference traditions that return every year and this week's update is definitely one of those!

The Intercultural Night is a fun evening event where every Conference member brings to the dinner an item of food or drink specific to their country for all other participants to try and enjoy!

The Market Place of Ideas is a new and exciting addition to the EUROCLIO Annual Conference programme. During this session, you will be able to hear from other educators who they are and what they do. Most importantly, this will be a chance for you to present yourself and your work. We hope this will be a session of exchange, learning and inspiration for all participants. This year’s Annual Conference will include a research poster/project fair during the Marketplace of Ideas. Conference participants will be able to walk around and explore, reading posters and pamphlets contributed by educators like yourselves which will hopefully lead to some great conversations and networking opportunities.

Posters can display research projects linked to History and Citizenship education that you have already completed, that are in progress or research ideas that you are perhaps seeking people to collaborate with in the future. It would be wonderful to have as many people contributing to this as possible. Whether you are able to attend the conference or not, please let us know if you would be interested in contributing a research poster or pamphlet to share with the EUROCLIO community by emailing alice@euroclio.eu. Feel free to pass on this information to anyone in your research communities that you believe may be interested in contributing!

The Pub Quiz is another element of the Annual Conference programme that has become a real EUROCLIO tradition. Coming together after a packed day of Conference proceedings, it is a lovely opportunity to socialise and relax - although your brain should certainly be put to the test! The questions posed are infamously challenging but also very fun.

After many fantastic applications, a number of the many workshops have been confirmed, updating our programme with new and inspiring content! These interactive workshops showcase innovative methodologies and pedagogical approaches that can really bring history to life! More workshops will be announced in the new year too. More information about the workshops can be found by clicking on the Workshops tab at the top of this page on the right.

Incorporated into the programme are many opportunities to dine together, but one of the highlights is the Festive Dinner that takes place on the final evening of the Conference. Expect a great opportunity to reflect pn the fruits of the Conference so far and lots of delicious local food!

Stay tuned for future programme updates and if this event has made you curious, register today!
