Abstract

This report outlines the rationale for a chronological approach, the method used to introduce the technique to PCET groups, responses of tutors and students, some illustrative short chronologies, a brief outline of the impact of the study and a proposal for further work. The loss of historical memory, identified by historians and others, has socio-political origins that have philosophical and pedagogical consequences for teacher educators. This straightforward study shows the attractiveness of a pedagogical approach outlined in the standard textbook Teaching and Training in Post-Compulsory Education. This was devised to raise awareness of the loss of historical memory and its consequences for professional understanding in Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET). The authors of the textbook and of this study identified from the outset an intractable problem: the very loss of sensitivity to historical difference. However, the responses from participants across the disciplines were generally positive and many suggestions were made in order to improve and develop the chronological approach. Outcomes include: general enthusiasm for the chronological approach among PCET teachers, revisions to the chronological methodology, illustrative chronologies, substantial contributions to two books, a proposal for further research
