H-World and Teachers?

If I may add to various of the points raised here:

(1) As a community college instructor, I have basically "learned on the job" when it comes to teaching world history (I mostly teach online and cover the first half). It would be a wonderful opportunity if there were a way to either have more local workshops, where HS & college faculty could come together and spend a week or so "catching up" with some of the newer research as well as approaches to teaching world history.
