Texas Conferences on Introductory History Courses

What kind of learning should an introductory history course entail in the 21st century? How can introductory history courses support student learning and success across the curriculum?  Since 2015, AHA and local partners have held a two-day conference on college-level introductory history courses to address these and other questions. Resources from the conference, including recordings of presentations and discussions, are now available online.
