H-Net's Network for the history of education



H-Education seeks to link participants with shared interests in the history of education, broadly defined as a recognized field covering both formal and informal institutions and processes regarding teaching and learning. We anticipate that our audience will consist of university professors, independent scholars, educators, and graduate students, from diverse fields of study.

Mentoring Session: Research Strategies for Historians in the Digital Age

In connection with his AERA 2014 Division F mentoring session on Research Strategies for Historians in the Digital Age, educational historian Jack Dougherty has posted a very useful list of guiding principles, strategies and nuts-and-bolts tools for students (and for the rest of us, too) for devising, undertaking, and disseminating our work.

Jack welcomes your feedback at his blog, and it would be great to see others' additions and suggestions on research strategies here on H-Education, too.
