Hidden Empires: 2022 Educators Conference

Our seminar, Hidden Empires, will explore a variety of topics uncovering the voices seldom elevated in history.

You will have the chance to learn from and work with expert historians alongside colleagues from around the state. The sessions will include both content from leading professors in the field and assistance from expert secondary teachers on how to translate new ideas and insights into your classroom.

You will leave with both an enhanced knowledge-base and a new set of ideas about how to teach even more effectively.  With its long history as the state‚Äôs leading center for teacher-training, UNC is proud to work with and for the good of teachers and students across Colorado. We hope you will consider joining us!
