(BLOOMINGTON) – Two graduate students from IU participated in the National Humanities Center student summer residency program.
Abby Ang and Elizabeth Maffetone from the IU Department of English in the College of Arts and Sciences were among 59 Ph.D. students from universities across the U.S. who participated in “Objects and Places in an Inquiry-Based Classroom: Teaching, Learning, and Research in the Humanities.”
The graduate students worked with leading scholars and educators from around the nation as they learned how to add value to their research by focusing on teaching and learning. Participants were introduced to a variety of instructional approaches and resources for the undergraduate classroom, including using interactive geospatial technologies to create inquiry-based maps. The participants also worked in interdisciplinary groups to create teaching materials in support of humanities education.
