Teaching history is the most important thing I do, and understanding the past is as significant as ever–maybe even more so as society becomes increasingly digital. For many classes, I continue to teach in traditional ways; the majority of my survey students say they appreciate my lectures most. Of course, I also emphasize student-centered discussion, teamwork, and “discovery” exercises, and my teaching has become more digital over the years. In addition to slides, I now use clickers, on-line quizzes, and a course management system to aid student learning. However, an even greater transformation in my teaching practice followed from a class called “Introduction to Museum Studies.” As I engaged with public history, I developed a more hands-on “studio” approach in all my classrooms. In this teaching space, you can find descriptions of recent courses.  I also created a section called ideas and tools, a place to compile various original materials related to teaching studio history and public history.
