History Teaching Research Project - Calling All Secondary Teachers

My name is Debra Donnelly and I am a history teacher educator at the School of Education at University of Newcastle. I am running a research project as part of the HERMES Research Group, to investigate the use of present day historical representations (such as museums, film, historical fiction novels, computer games, simulations, artworks) in the secondary History classroom and how these can enhance learning outcomes. Phase one of this work is to ask History teachers if and how they integrate these resources and their opinions of their value in teaching History. At the end of the survey teachers have the opportunity to volunteer to be interviewed in Phase Two of the project which will explore more deeply teacher ideas and practices.
I am hoping that you can spare 10-15 minutes to contribute to this project that ultimately seeks to disseminate teaching strategies and ideas to the profession via academic and professional journals, conferences and websites. Please send this request to your network of history teacher colleagues. The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/hist_rep1.
