Webinar series: Diversity in the primary history curriculum

HA webinar series for primary teachers

We are pleased to announce a new series of webinars aimed at teachers working in primary schools. This series will consider the following questions: What is diversity? Why has it proved to be controversial? How can we respond to this? Why is it so important in developing children's understanding of the past?

These webinars, led by the Historical Association's primary committee and guest experts, will each explore a key theme related to diversity in history and will suggest practical strategies for weaving different aspects of diversity into your curriculum. Each of the webinars can be attended on their own or as a series.


Each webinar will take place from 4-5pm. For all webinars we recommend listening live in order to interact with the presenter(s), but if you are unable to participate live then a recording link will be made available to all registered delegates within 2 working days.
