INNOVATIVE DIGITAL engagement and using LEGO as ways of engaging ‘students as partners’ will be explored in this LITE Masterclass.

Jamie Wood, Principal Lecturer in History at the University of Lincoln, will explore the ways students have been actively engaged in learning History through co-creation

The session will explore two ways students have been ‘making history at the University of Lincoln’ ranging from simple classroom activities to digital projects embedded cross the entire curriculum. Dr Wood explains: “The first part outlines a HEA/JISC-funded project, ‘Making Digital History’, in which students from across the curriculum were challenged to produce online learning resources that taught others about their research into history.
