Webinar | Teaching History this Fall: Strategies and Tools for Learning and Equity

Panelists: Ed Ayers (Univ. of Richmond), Annie Evans (Univ. of Richmond), Tony Field (Bunk), Stephanie Foote (John N. Gardner Institute), Peter Felten (Elon Univ.), Drew Koch (John N. Gardner Institute), and Susannah McGowan (Georgetown Univ.)


This workshop, facilitated as part of the Gardner Institute New American History project, aims to help prepare instructors for a disrupted academic term and a dynamic moment in U.S. history by profiling new digital resources and pedagogical approaches. Drawing on concrete examples from faculty at diverse institutions, fellows of the Gardner Institute will present frameworks for developing equity-oriented course activities and assignments aligned with the "contextualization machines" afforded by the New American History initiative developed by Ed Ayers and colleagues. The workshop will include considerable time for discussion about teaching, learning, equity, and New American History so bring your questions and inspirations. This event is scheduled for August 6, 2020 at 3:00 PM ET. Register here.
