University of Kentucky
Currently an administrator focusing on interrelationships across traditional silos in educational settings, I am especially interested in the teaching and learning of history as a form of civic engagement. Much of my historical research and teaching is conducted within open educational environments, leading to multiple avenues for communication and collaboration.
