Session Abstract

Drawing on the AHA’s History Gateways initiative, this panel will bring together experienced teachers from a range of institutions to offer insights on how introductory courses in history can be redesigned to better serve students with a range of preparation and motivations. Specifically, each of the panel presenters has been involved in the redesign of one or more courses in their department, and they will describe the evidence-based process used to identify goals and objectives for their course redesign, lessons learned through the process of course redesign, and outcomes of their redesign efforts. Participants in this panel presentation will leave with strategies they can adapt and use as they consider redesign of aspects of their own introductory courses in history.
