Tuning and History: A Personal Overview
Isaacs, Ann Katherine
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v16 n4 p403-409 Oct 2017
The text places Tuning History in the context of the rapidly developing international collaboration among historians which began in Europe in 1989, with the ECTS Pilot project, and continued, from 2000 on, with the European History Networks (for research and for curriculum development) working in parallel and in collaboration with Tuning, in Europe and other continents. The History "Subject Area Group" has often taken the role of pilot discipline, representing the Humanities in key European and other projects. The text points out the connection of this key role with the great diversity in History learning and teaching worldwide: historical narratives and debates are very different in different countries, and this very difference makes international collaboration a powerful heuristic tool. History training forms valuable competences for many professional and societal roles, and in student-centred higher education systems, learning outcomes can be defined with reference to competences rather than to specific subject matter.
