Grant Summary

$40,000 over 25 months to improve the preparation of college and university history faculty through a partnership of the AHA and the history department at the University of California at Berkeley. The AHA will recruit nationally recognized leaders in research on teaching and learning in the field of history to work closely with the Berkeley history faculty in revising a course for graduate students that prepares them to be teaching assistants at the university.  This project will also connect to the Teagle-funded initiative of the Graduate Student Instructor Resource Center at Berkeley, focused on preparing graduate students from across the University for teaching. AHA will disseminate their model through a series of workshops at its annual meeting.
