There are also details of activities and services the History community have found most valuable and recommendations on how these may be continued in the future.

Mapping Internationalisation in the Classics Project

Writing about web page

Notice & Call for information: Mapping Internationalisation in the Classics Project. Classics in the Subject Centre (CSC) at the Higher Education Academy is supporting research for a project entitled: “Mapping Internationalisation in the Classics: a survey of study & travel abroad programmes for UK Classics Students”. The rational of the project is to provide the disciplinary community with a picture of the presence of study or travel abroad programmes catering to the needs of students following degree programmes in Classics and related disciplines at UK Universities. As the interests of History and Classics departments often coincide any comments or suggestions from the History community would be very much appreciated. If you feel you have information to contribute please get in touch. Contact. Dr. Scott Burgess, project lead:

Launch of the 'Teaching International Students' Project

Writing about web page

The Higher Edcaution Academy is pleased to announce the formal launch of the ‘Teaching International Students’ Project. This project is a joint initiative of the Higher Education Academy and the United Kingdom Council for International Students Affairs (UKCISA) with funding from the Prime Minister’s Initiative 2 and the Academy. Melodee Beals of the History Subject Centre is a contributor to the project.

As international student numbers in the UK have grown and now number almost one in five students, issues around teaching them have gained increasing prominence.  This project aims to provide support and guidance to academic teaching staff wishing to improve their teaching in ways that will also benefit all students. The project focuses on two core areas of work: the establishment of a research database and resources bank on teaching and learning for international students, and a series of collaborative events (seminars, workshops and staff development events) on research and teaching and learning practice.

Work on the resources bank has already begun and includes many new resources, however, we are keen to also bring together the many excellent resources that are already available. We need your help in identifying these resources and nominating people who would like to be involved in this project.  If you would like to contribute to the project, please contact Melodee Beals or visit the History "Teaching International Students Page" at

TALIS Project Begins

Writing about web page

This past Tuesday, staff members from throughout the Higher Education Academy met to kick off the Teaching and Learning of International Students (TALIS) initiative. Melodee Beals, Academic Coordinator from History, travelled to the Higher Education Academy's main offices in York to take part.

Though the project has just begin, the level of inter-disciplinary cooperation already taking place promises to provide educational practitioners throughout the HE sector with the support they need to teach an increasingly diverse student body and to prepare them for an increasingly globalised world.

Led by Dr Janette Ryan and Jude Carroll, the TALIS project aims to make a major contribution to strengthening the UK international student experience, and by extension the international horizons of all students in the UK. This will be achieved by:

•establishing a repository of national and international research on teaching and learning of international students, using the Academy's EvidenceNet facility

•identifying and disseminating information and guidance about teaching and learning of international students

•providing guidance on staff development strategies relating to teaching and learning of international students via events, guidance materials and EvidenceNet

•raising the profile of the importance of learning and teaching of international students.

For more information on History's involvement with the TALIS initiative, please contact Melodee Beals.
