About

Middle Ages for Educators is designed for teachers, students, and anyone who wants to learn about the Middle Ages (c. 300-1500 C.E.). 

Middle Ages for Educators was created as a response to the shift to online teaching in March of 2020, and has grown to offer short video lectures, digital tools, translated primary sources, and pedagogical approaches for teaching the Middle Ages. It also features links to external resources on teaching and learning about the Middle Ages (300-1500 C.E.). Videos, created by medievalist experts, run 6-20 minutes long, and many are accompanied by links to primary materials, discussion questions, and associated web resources. We welcome teachers, students, and all learners to discover the richness of Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages along with us.
