Last week, Associate Professor of Education Tony Taylor published an article about how meddling with the history curriculum could backfire: (http://mona.sh/oVRpS) which has sparked interesting debate on .
One commenter refers to Napoleon Bonaparte's suggestion that “History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon.” He says that “the presentation of curriculum is politicised by the viewpoint of the teacher.”
Do you think this is the case with your course of study or faculty you teach in?
In celebration of Google's 15th birthday we're having a Hangout with one of Google's very own employees, Isa Notermans. Here's your chance to ask Isa about her own time at Monash and what it's like working for Google.
Read more about Isa on our blog: http://mona.sh/oBXSf
We'll be posting the link to the Hangout here 30 minutes before the event starts! If you can't watch it live then don't worry, it will be available after the event.
Hope to see you there with some great questions for Isa!
(Yes, we just referred to ourselves in the third person.)

Named after prominent Australian Sir John Monash, Monash University was established by an Act of Parliament in 1958. It was the first university established in the State of Victoria for 106 years.
Our first campus opened in 1961 in Clayton. The first intake was a modest 347 students.
Since then, we have grown into a network of campuses, centres and partners around the world. There are currently more than 59,000 students enrolled at Monash from over 170 countries.
Monash students have a long history of putting theory into action. In the early days of activism on campus, students were involved in politics, Vietnam War protests and the second wave of feminism. More recently, we see this desire to act through our students' involvement in anti-poverty campaigns, volunteering and programs to create a green, sustainable campus.
We offer courses in architecture, biosciences, health, law, business, engineering, science, humanities and culture, design and creative art, education, information technology and communication.
We have created a thriving cultural atmosphere with outstanding performing arts and concert programs and a growing collection of contemporary Australian art.
