The Federation of Australian Historical Societies & The RHSV/History Support Group present:
AUGUST 20 @ 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
We are thrilled that Dr Rosalie Triolo will be once again offering her Writing Local History workshops to RHSV members and friends.
A gentle warning – these workshops inevitably book out!
Participants will:
- gain new perspectives on local history
- discover how to locate and use new primary and secondary sources
- learn how to write and present well for different audiences, both established and new.
Dr Rosalie Triolo has facilitated the development of History teachers at Monash University for 25 years in a career in History education spanning 40.
She is RHSV Vice-President, Chair of the History Victoria Support Group as well as a Life Member and Past-President of the History Teachers’ Association of Victoria. She is active in numerous state and national communities that support the promotion, teaching, learning and writing of history and has won numerous awards for her work. Rosalie has lived and taught in diverse rural Victorian locations and will infuse the sessions with her deep interests in Victorian and wider Australian history.
Note: for our interstate members please note that Rosalie will be offering Zoom workshops later in 2022 and throughout 2023 across all states and territories through the auspices of the Federation of Australian Historical Societies.

The HCV was formed as an advisory body in 2001 and incorporated in 2003. It comprises representatives from cultural and educational institutions and heritage bodies; history teachers and curriculum advisors; academic and professional historians; and local, Indigenous, community and specialist history organisations.

As the peak body for history, the HCV has both ‘outward-looking’ roles (including advocacy and representation to government and the wider community, consultation, community education, and networking with allied interest groups) and ‘inward-looking’ roles (including member support, information dissemination, and networking between members).
