A free and open course offered via EdX in October 2015, “Teaching Historical Inquiry with Objects,” will be facilitated by Dr. Kathy Swan of the University of Kentucky College of Education, and Naomi Coquillon, National Museum of American History of the Smithsonian Institution.

The course is geared to middle and high school social studies and history teachers. It lasts six weeks (the instructors suggest spending three hours per week in the course) and will offer participants new teaching techniques designed to engage students in the process of historical inquiry.
