Conference: Teaching History in the 21st Century

The Teaching History Conference began in 2015 as a way to bring together scholars and practitioners across the K–16 continuum—including K–12 teachers, university and college professors, graduate students, and education researchers—to discuss history education. This year's conference, Teaching History in the 21st Century, will consider history education in the twenty-first century, and the ways in which history can respond to our current moment. The conference will feature keynote addresses from Anne Hyde of the American History Association Tuning History Project and Professor at the University of Oklahoma, and Kelly Schrum of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media and Associate Professor at George Mason University. Bob Bain, Associate Professor in the Department of History and School of Education at the University of Michigan, will serve as the conference moderator.
