Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship

Developed with the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, the Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship offers professional development for middle and high school American history teachers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The program aims to use the power of games, play, and digital tools to transform both teacher practice and student engagement. In the long term, it may also provide a new disciplinary resource for university-based teacher preparation.

Fellows attend a free-of-charge, six-day workshop during the week of July 16, 2017, in the Princeton, New Jersey area, including single-occupancy housing and meals, with expenses paid. A ten-month follow-up program—including two mid-year workshops and coaching session by Institute of Play staff—will support fellows’ use of games in their classrooms.
