Join us May 7-8, 2021 for the 4th Teaching History Conference at UC Davis

Call for Proposals is Here!


The Teaching History Conference began in 2015 as a way to bring together practitioners and scholars across the K–16 continuum to discuss the challenges and opportunities faced by history educators at all levels. This community includes teaching and learning environments beyond the classroom such as museums, digital platforms, and any public space in which history education happens. One of our core values is to create a space in which K–12 teachers, university and college faculty, graduate students, teacher educators, education researchers, and history practitioners from a range of contexts can learn from each other while exploring shared problems of practice.

2021 Conference Theme:

May 2021 brings the conference back to northern California and to the UC Davis campus. The 2021 conference, “Challenges of Teaching and Learning History: Issues of Pedagogy and Content” furthers this collaborative dialogue by focusing on “teaching hard history” and asking the question: How can conversations across the K–16 continuum and beyond help us more effectively address pedagogical challenges and contested or controversial histories?
