Special Projects at the 2014 Annual Meeting: New Video Available
The AHA YouTube channel now features video recordings of sessions related to several AHA special projects.
Teaching and Learning in the
Funded by the Teagle Foundation
What can graduate programs do to help future historians understand student learning? How can the graduate curriculum introduce students to the intellectual issues that emerge as they undertake their first teaching assignments, as well as the practical ones?
In session 27, Training Graduate Students to Teach: Berkeley’s Teaching at the University Course, presenters reflect on an AHA-led effort to revise a required course for first-time TAs.
In session 159, How to Integrate the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning into Graduate Programs, presenters consider the opportunities for and constraints on teaching history graduate students about teaching and learning, in different types of institutions and at different points in the curriculum.
AHA Tuning Project
Funded by a grant from Lumina Foundation
For the second year, faculty participants in the Tuning project were presenters in the Workshop on Undergraduate Teaching. They offered dozens of examples of how different history faculty members can lead their colleagues to rethink the role of history in general education curricula at their institutions, and to turn the current moment of big changes in general education into opportunities for the history discipline to assert its importance for all students, including those focused on degrees in science and technical fields.
