Project Team

World History Commons Advisory Board members bring a commitment to humanities scholarship, pedagogy, digital humanities, and OERs. Advisory Board members will review wireframes, mockups, user personas, and content development plans as well as testing digital prototypes. They will provide extensive feedback on the scholarship, pedagogy, and usability of World History Commons at key points throughout the development process and will assist with outreach when the website launches.
