Introduction:

Traditionally, university teaching of the humanities disciplines has been eminently theoretical, based primarily on the weight of the class imparted with skill by the teacher. The progressive involvement of the Espacio Europeo de Educación Superior (EEES), however, entails a new reality: the new pedagogic paradigm instead aims to equip the student with the working tools with which he can become the protagonist of his own process of learning. Nevertheless, it is evident that, even in this new paradigm, the role of the teacher in the classroom remains fundamental.

In this sense, our proposal aims to revitalise the subjects of Early Modern history, taking as a principal support the subject of “Universal Early Modern History”.

Primary objectives:

  • To awaken in the student body a notable interest in the sphere of Early Modern history.
  • To promote the use of the UB’s Virtual Campus and configure an extensive catalogue of electronic and digital resources that make reference to the field of Early Modern history.
  • To encourage the development of activities that favour student mobility, such as visits to exhibitions or historical archives of particular relevance.
  • To strengthen the links between secondary post-obligatory education and the university world, propelling the development of “Research Work” based on the study of Early Modern history.
