This week’s conversation on Historically Thinking is with Nick Proctor, Professor of History at Simpson College. We discuss “Reacting to the Past,” the game-based pedagogy that was featured in Episode 16 in a conversation with its creator Mark Carnes. Nick has written or cowritten four “Reacting” games, and is on the “Reacting to the Past” editorial board. If you’re interested in games, or teaching, or history, you’ll find something interesting in this conversation.
Note: You’ve never heard this before, but it’s an old conversation, recorded a year and a half ago and then never released. What’s old can sometimes be just like new.
