Technology's Impact in American History 2018: The Army and the Technology of Warfare

Teachers are invited to participate in a TIAH colloquium on The Army and the Technology of Warfare to explore the history of the Army’s role in developing new technology and promoting innovation as a result of changes in warfare. Teachers selected will work at the United States Army Heritage and Education Center under the guidance of a colloquium team to create primary source lessons and resources for their classroom.

This TIAH colloquium is a collaboration between NCHE and the Teaching with Primary Sources Program of the Library of Congress in cooperation with the United States Army Heritage and Education Center.


Each participant will receive a $500 stipend to offset costs associated with attendance (ex. travel or hotel costs).  Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the venue for participants on each day of the colloquium.  Each attendee will receive a complimentary one-year membership to the National Council for History Education and will be eligible for additional professional growth opportunities via follow-up webinars and the annual NCHE conference.

Colloquium Team: 

  • Historian: Bernard Carlson, University of Virginia
  • Education Specialist: Lucinda Evans, Topeka Public Schools, KS
  • Master Teacher: Andrew Dangel, Old Mill Middle School North, MD
