Meaningful Teaching and Learning in the Humanities Classroom | Speakers

July 11–15, 2022


Since 2015, the National Humanities Center has offered PhD graduate students in the humanities an opportunity to learn about and experience best practices in teaching and learning. Each year, a cohort of students works in small teams to address a relevant theme and create group and individual instructional materials.

These scholars, master educators, and technology experts will be leading Meaningful Teaching and Learning in the Humanities Classroom.
