Doug Belshaw’s blog – education research, teaching innovation, funny pictures…

Doug Belshaw is a director of e-learning in Northumberland, a Doctoral candidate in education at Durham University, and, I’m told, regarded as something of a guru in digitally-supported history-teaching circles.

His blog posts feature radical takes on education policy, excellent distillations of education research (this one’s on enquiry-based learning), some rather remarkable meditations on the tangents his thesis is taking (how many theses address both knowledge management and Empson’s Seven Types of Ambiguity?), and funny stuff on the internet.

And it’s worth following him on twitter, too: @dajbelshaw

    You’re very kind! The ‘digitally-supported history-teaching circles’ are, unfortunately, not as large as I’d like them to be… 😉
