The Humanities and Social Studies Academic Group, National Institute of Education

icon ABOUT US

The Humanities and Social Studies Education Academic Group is responsible for the professional preparation and development of teachers in the subject areas of primary and secondary social studies, geography, history, economics, elements of business, and accounting. We conduct educational research in these areas as well as academic research in history, geography and sociology.


icon WHAT WE DO

We are committed to exploring innovative approaches to teaching and learning in the humanities and social sciences such as inquiry-based learning and e-learning. We seek to develop best practices as we collaborate in partnerships with schools, teachers, and researchers.


icon OUR PARTNERS

HSSE values the importance of connecting with schools in order to know more about student learning, the concerns of teachers and school cultures. This enables HSSE to relate its curriculum and programmes to school needs and to prepare pre-service teachers to be skillful, critical and reflective practitioners, ready to make an impact in today’s schools. We also value partnership and collaboration with local, regional and international organisations to better understand new developments in educational practice and research. In doing so, our academic staff members are kept abreast of innovative practice and events that can advance our work.
