A New Way of Teaching Ancient History : The Case of the Bachelor’s of Education at the University of Seville

Fernando Lozano Gómez, Alfonso Álvarez-Ossorio Rivas, and Victor Sánchez Domínguez assess the conclusions of several successive research projects on teaching innovation funded by the University of Seville. Members of the Department of Ancient History developed these projects that are indebted to game based learning. The main goal was to present History in all its complexity, without simple explanations, and to improve the student’s general knowledge of the subject by promoting autonomous learning. The paper presents the new teaching materials created by the members of the project. These include an open access handbook with specific teaching tools, instructions for autonomous learning through historical role-play, and the use of timeline playing cards in the university classroom for learning History.
