About the Project


The Spring 2024 HIST 4351 Medieval Technology and Scientific Thought class worked with the UTA Libraries to create this digital exhibit. This activity was part of a Hands-On History pedagogy to move instruction outside of the classroom by embedding archival research into the classroom. In addition, this project represented the opportunity to teach 21st Century history skills, to highlight career paths for history majors, and to explore creation of artifacts of research beyond the typical term research paper.
