I am Monika Lehner, H-Net's Vice- President for Teaching and Learning. l be using this space to keep you up to speed about iniatiatives and projects on teaching and learning. I chair the Teaching Committee where we come up with new ideas to make the many teaching-related resources and initiatives on H-Net more visible. I’ll be using this space to let you know about  things we have in mind and to introduce new projects, especially projects that go beyond the boundaries/limitations of individual networks and build on knowledge and expertise that we all bring into H-Net.

In  'Über die allmähliche Verfertigung der Gedanken beim Reden' ['On the Gradual Production of Thoughts Whilst Speaking'], Heinrich von Kleist (1777-1811) discussed the importance of talking about ideas as a means to develop them. I want to go one step further: This blog shall become a place where conversations on new projects can find a starting point and a home base.
