As well as writing books and scholarly journal articles, historians also use technology to inform, and engage with, the general public about their research. This means that if you study history at university, you are likely to encounter a range of technologies in your classes and coursework assignments. Learning how to work with technology will help you to understand and communicate history, but will also enable you to gain a range of skills that will be useful in the workplace.
One of the most common technologies you will encounter are the slides used in a presentation. Many, if not all, of your lectures will be accompanied by slides, as your tutors will use them to show images, play video, and summarise the key points of the lecture. You may also be asked to use slides in presentation assignments, where you share your ideas on a topic with small groups of other students.
