Approaches to Teaching the History of the English Language

Philip Seargeant

Oxford University Press

Within the context of a rapidly changing educational landscape, this chapter addresses issues around the teaching of the history of English to non-traditional students via online and multimedia platforms. It uses as a case study the video series “The History of English in Ten Minutes”—a ten-part animation series broadcast via YouTube and iTunesU—as a means of examining how pedagogical approaches which use new media resources can actively engage large, often non-traditional student audiences. The chapter reviews the design, production, and dissemination of these teaching materials and the implications of their reception and uptake for contemporary pedagogical approaches to the history of English.
