Maltese History Teachers Association
The HTA of Malta was set up in 1993 and incorporates in it teachers of History coming from various levels and working in different sectors of the Maltese educational structure. The HTA organizes educational visits to historical and heritage sites, publishes pedagogical material for the teaching of History and holds an annual academic lecture to commemorate Michael A. Sant, one of its Honorary Presidents and one of the founders of the present HTA. The HTA is recognized by the Education Division of the Government of Malta and cooperates closely with the education authorities. The HTA is the sole organization in Malta that incorporates all the teachers of History who choose to join. It collaborates with the Social Studies Teachers’ Association and the Geography Teachers’ Association for the furtherance of interdisciplinary activity in areas of common interest. In 1998 the HTA joined EUROCLIO, the European Association of History Teachers’ Associations.
