This site features historians in Europe, Australia and North America talking about their lives as university teachers. The short clips illustrate their hopes and fears, satisfactions and challenges, ideals and compromises, successes and mistakes. Together their stories provide valuable insights to assist individuals, departments and the discipline community enhance the practice of teaching. We hope they will help everyone who wishes to think through what they do, what they believe in and what they want their students to be and become.
