The Teaching History Conference began in 2015 as a way to bring scholars and practitioners across the K–16 continuum together to discuss history education. More than 150 participants from five different countries—including K–12 teachers, university and college professors, graduate students, and education researchers—began a collaborative dialogue on the unique challenges and opportunities faced by history educators at all levels.
This year, the Teaching History Conference will continue and expand on this conversation by considering history education in the twenty-first century, and the ways in which history can respond to our current moment. We conceive of this theme as inclusive of—but not limited to—teaching history in a digital context, and we encourage submissions that consider contemporary issues beyond the digital.

The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners across the K-16 continuum to engage in informed conversation about the theory and practice of teaching. K-12 practitioners and university practitioners and scholars have much to learn from one another. In all sessions, all voices are welcomed and respected.
