I’m a founding member of THEN/HiERTHEN/HiER, led by Penney Clarke at the University of British Columbia, the first pan-Canadian organization devoted to promoting—and improving—history teaching and learning by bringing together the multiple and varied constituencies involved in history education: academic historians; public historians in museums, archives and historic sites; practicing teachers; researchers based in faculties of education; and curriculum policy makers. I’ve had the privilege of helping build THEN/HiER, and am a founding Board Member.  Our goal is to create more research-informed practice (from kindergarten to graduate school) and more practice-informed research through dialogue among these various communities.
