Image Presentism: Stimulating Historical Contextualization in History Education
University of Groningen
Historical contextualization is a difficult skill to perform successfully. Its failure often stems from presentism or the bias by which people assume that the same goals, intentions, attitudes, and beliefs existed in the past as exist today. In order to compare, describe, judge or evaluate the past students have to avoid this presentism.

Image Teaching in Europe: Reflective Practice
University of Regensburg
Students often claim they miss practical elements during their studies. However, school practice doesn’t contribute to the professional development of “reflective practicioners”, if it doesn’t engage with its theoretical foundations. In this course we therefore try to explore the value of reflection and evaluate best practice examples from a transcultural European perspective.
