Description

The modern University classroom demands a lot more from us as teachers of the Middle Ages, but all the new technology can also be daunting and inhibiting for both sides. The presenters in this session provide a variety of innovative and practical perspectives, at times in contradistinction to each other, but all aiming for the same goal: to make the Middle Ages really exciting.
