Gifted children, cultural history, teaching and learning, digital
Nate earned his PhD in history at Mason in 2017. His dissertation focused on the cultural history of gifted children in the United States. Nate is also a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Digital Teaching and Learning working on education projects at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, particularly on two online courses for K-12 teachers, Hidden in Plain Sight and Virginia Studies. These courses follow an inquiry-based approach to learning about history and also explore how historians analyze evidence. Nate has also taught a graduate course, Teaching Hidden History, where history and education students create their own online history modules.
