About CDHE


The Center for Digital History and Education at UMBC (CDHE), based in the UMBC Department of History, draws on an experienced staff to participate in university-wide digital humanities initiatives, develop partnership projects with public institutions, and seek funding from grant-making agencies interested in the improvement of education, public history, and digital scholarship.

Through its affiliation with the Center for History Education (CHE), the CDHE has developed numerous K-12 curriculum materials, including lesson plans, History Labs, assessment resources, digital storybooks, electronic field trips, and an iPad app. A partner in eight U.S. Department of Education Teaching American History grant programs, the CDHE has conducted specialized graduate courses and seminars in history education.

Recent CDHE’s digital initiatives include Sherman’s March and America: Mapping Memory, collaborations with the Star Spangled Music Foundation, the UMBC Imaging Research Center, the Martha Ross Center for Oral History and the Orser Center for the Study of Place, Community and Culture.
