Thanks to a grant from CU's Undergraduate Education Development Program, the History Department has hired Natalie Mendoza to lead a department-wide project to rethink and improve undergraduate history pedagogy, an effort that we are calling the History Teaching & Learning Project (HTLP)

The overriding purposes of the HTLP are to rethink and to improve undergraduate history pedagogy by engaging in a systematic, department-wide discussion and assessment of: what student learning objectives in history should be; how we teach our courses and how we might improve our pedagogy by engaging with the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) in History; how we might refresh our major to better reflect the outcomes of these discussions; and how we can better communicate the value of an undergraduate education in history to our students and the public at large.
