CFP Deadline: Feb. 28, Call for Manuscripts: “Teaching History,” Academic Exchange Quarterly

Academic Exchange Quarterly welcomes manuscripts on teaching any historical subject, time period, or region. Here are some questions that may be addressed… other questions as well as proposals from diverse perspectives are encouraged.

1. What pedagogical or andragogical approaches should be used in teaching an
undergraduate or graduate history class?
2. As our understanding of history and historical development changes, how
should we adjust our teaching and learning facilitation methods to reflect
these changes?
3. What types of methods work best at each level–high school, community
college, undergraduate, graduate or post-graduate?
4. How appropriate or effective are currently broadly popular methods, such as
cooperative learning (i.e. group work), service learning, and educational
games, for the history classroom?
5. How much should we adapt old methods or move to completely new approaches?
In other words, how and how far should we teach beyond the textbook?
6. How can we assess the relative effectiveness of new methods for teaching
7. What do we teach and/or should we teach in a secondary school history class:
memory, heritage, traditional indigenous histories, counterfactual history, or
reading and writing? How much history should be required in a school
8. What educational technology is useful for teaching history?
9. How can we effectively use educational technology to promote historical
10. What is the effect of computer-based technology on historical scholarship
and teaching?
