Leah Shopkow is a scholar of medieval historiography in her disciplinary work, which provided a natural segue into history pedagogy. Her previous publications include History and Community: Norman Historical Writing in the Eleventh and Twelfth Centuries (Washington, DC: Catholic Univ. Press, 1997) and Lambert of Ardres, The History of the Counts of Guines and Lords of Ardres, translation, introduction, and notes (Philadelphia: Univ. of Pennsylvania Press, 2001). She is a founding co-director and the PI of the History Learning Project (HLP). Her most recent publications include “What ‘Decoding the Disciplines’ has to offer ‘Threshold Concepts,’” in Threshold Concepts and Transformational Learning (2010) and, with the other HLP directors, “The Union of Epistemology and Teaching” in The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning In and Across the Disciplines (forthcoming 2013). She has presented papers and given workshops at IS-SoTL, the Wisconsin Faculty College, and the Teaching Professor Conference, the Irish National Academy for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (NAIRTL), and the International Threshold Concepts Conference, the Australian National History Workshop, and the Australian History Association (they call us the “other” AHA), as well as workshops at individual colleges and universities. She keeps up with the disciplinary research, however, and has most recently published “Connections or Three Stories about Life along the Road: The Survival of the Benedictine Monastery of Andres,” Viator 41, no. 2 (2010): 227–56. She is currently working on a critical edition and translation of the Chronicle of Andres (c. 1220–34, Pas-de-Calais).
