The Warwick History Interactive Skills for Researchers is a package designed to teach and assess fundamental historical skills online. It is designed to enhance History Undergraduates’ use of information resources, conventions in referencing and presentation, analysis of documents, understanding of historiography, familiarity with certain key concepts, and knowledge of the ‘Late Modern’ era (at an interim stage of the First Year Undergraduate course). As such, it is designed to smooth the transition for students becoming undergraduate historians through a term-long induction. It consists of useful information, presented interactively, as well as formative and summative assessment elements.
