Teaching History to Political Science Students: Historiography as Part of Political Process
Toplak, Cirila; Pikalo, Jernej; Luksic, Igor
Innovations in Education and Teaching International, v44 n4 p377-386 Nov 2007
In the paper we attempt to address principal issues of political history as part of the political science curriculum today, ranging from "what to teach" to "how to teach." Assuming the necessity in contemporary information society of selecting information rather than only accessing it, we propose approaches, such as topics networking, to create political arguments by using historical facts. We also propose successfully tested teaching methods, such as facilitation and hermeneutical procedure, aimed at upgrading lecturer-student interaction and equipping students with precious communication skills.
