We welcome individual, panel, and roundtable proposals on any and all aspects of teaching, including theories and methodologies, remote and hybrid learning, content and delivery, as well as combining research interests into the classroom for first-year students and non-majors. We also encourage teachers with unique classroom experiences or teaching methodologies to submit proposals for workshops to present their approach to teaching.
The conference will be held in a digital format spread over the evenings (US central time zone) of the week of August 29 to allow those teachers who are already in the classroom an opportunity to participate. The sessions will be recorded and available on the H-Net Commons after the event.
All proposals should include a title, CVs, and email addresses for all presenters, and abstracts of no more than 200 words. Submissions are encouraged to focus on any of the following themes:
- The challenges and strategies for teaching history and related subjects in “Uncharted Territories.”
- Teaching specific historical eras, topics, or themes with a particular emphasis on topics that could be considered controversial.
- How to navigate the politics of topics in our contemporary political environment, such as CRT, Black Lives Matter, anti-semitism, anti-AAPI, reproductive rights, etc.
- Recommendations for specific strategies for success despite contemporary challenges.
Please email a submission to H-Net Teaching Conference Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 27, 2022.
In the spirit of H-Net’s Open Source beliefs, the conference will be free and open to all.
