Commemorating the tenth anniversary of the Michael A. Sant Memorial Lecture

 

The History Teachers Association in collaboration with the Faculty of Education of the University of Malta will this year be commemorating the tenth anniversary of the Michael A. Sant Memorial Lecture. This annual event was launched in 2002 in memory of Michael A. Sant (1934-1999), pioneer of modern history teaching in Malta. Along these ten years various history pedagogy experts have been invited to Malta to present the latest findings and research on the subject. This year Comm. Dr George Cassar, President, and Prof. Yosanne Vella, Vice-President of the History Teachers Association and academic members of the University of Malta will be giving a joint paper entitled ‘A hundred years of history teaching and learning in Malta’. During the evening a ‘History Option promotion clip’ will also be projected and introduced by Adrian Zahra, PRO and Webmaster of the HTA.

As was done in the fifth year of the Lectures, the HTA in collaboration with the Faculty of Education will this year launch another book with lectures 6 to 10. This publication entitled History teaching & learning: bridging the theory / practice divide (vol. 2), will be available during the event for those who wish to purchase a copy.

The event will take place on 19 October 2011 at the National Curriculum Centre, Farsons Street, Hamrun, and those attending are asked to be seated by 5.45 p.m.

For further information one may contact Dr Cassar on george.cassar@um.edu.mt or Prof. Vella on yosanne.vella@um.edu.mt
