Teaching & learning
All students and staff are encouraged to use the extensive facilities and expert assistance available in Archives & Special Collections.
We also welcome group visits by students and staff from College departments, including general familiarisation visits for newly-inducted students and timetabled teaching sessions involving hands-on use of archive documents and rare books designed for specific course modules.
Archives and Special Collections fully support the College teaching programme across the different Departments and Schools. Teaching sessions have recently included students from the History MA module, 'The Construction of Modern Heroism'; 'The History of Warfare' MA taught by the Department of War Studies as well as modules in English Literature, Defence Studies, Physics and historical training for Nurses.
Support by the Archives for the College Summer School programme includes the module, 'Managing International Conflicts: Institutions & Practice of International Security'.
The Archives are participating in the Graduate School's new AHRC-funded project, co-ordinated by London Cultural Connections: 'Arts, Academia & a Wider Audience', designed to improve the public engagement skills of doctoral students.
The collections of historical material held in Archives and Special Collections provide an invaluable teaching resource and College faculty members who think their students might benefit are encouraged to contact Archives and Special Collections.
