The Future of Teaching the Past (IJILTH, Special Issue)

full name / name of organization: 
International Journal of Innovation and Leadership in the Teaching of Humanities

The teaching of ancient languages and cultures has become increasingly marginalised within the linguistic studies in general, and university curricula in particular. In this issue, we will see at new ways how new teaching methodologies and technologies can be applied to this historical branch.

Among the questions addressed here are the contributions historical linguistic studies can make to both neighbouring and more remote academic disciplines, as well as to the general education and professional training of university students.

The focus will also be on the challenges which historical studies have to confront in 21st century tertiary teaching: development of competencies, inclusion of new multimedia technologies, expansion of lifelong learning, etc.
