Museum of Vancouver & UBC Vancouver

Bursaries are available to help participants join us for this unforgettable experience.Stunning vistas from the Museum of Vancouver meet with critical perspectives at our Historical Thinking Summer Institute, from July 7-12.
Historical thinking is now included as a foundation of the Ontario history curriculum. It plays a key role in the new draft social studies curriculum in British Columbia. Other Canadian provinces are moving in the same direction.
The summer institute is designed for teachers, graduate students, curriculum developers, professional development leaders and museum educators who want to enhance their expertise at designing and teaching history courses and programs with explicit attention to historical thinking.
These concepts will shape our exploration of two substantive themes: Aboriginal-settler relations, and human-nature relations over time. We will use local cases, resources and expertise available in Vancouver, but the work will be applicable to other locations across Canada and internationally.
