One of the most important components of our mission is to assist teachers in the humanities and social sciences. When H-Net launched over twenty years ago, its founders stressed the potential for developing networks around teaching, so that strength in numbers would translate into new ideas, resources, and techniques for instructors at all levels. It's why H-Net won the AHA's prestigious James Harvey Robinson teaching prize soon after we launched, in 1996. Maybe you picked up a great idea, the solution to a problem, a new lecture resource, a discussion strategy, a new approach to assessment, on one of our networks? Our editors are veteran instructors who are sensitive to the challenges of a modern classroom and eager to present new ideas to their subscribers.
The new H-Net Commons, http://networks.h-net.org, is helping us take this service to the next level by adding the capacity to create archives of special teaching projects and primary sources generated from professionals like you, and moderated by professionals at H-Net.
