Teaching Anthropology Interest Group (TAIG) Blog

The goal of this blog is to create a community of educators who share successful strategies, seek answers to instructional challenges, and provoke discussion on timely topics like the public perception of higher education and the value of anthropology within a liberal arts education.

Call for Guest Bloggers

Any teaching-related topic is welcome and we invite guest posts from both anthropology instructors & students as well as practicing anthropologists engaged in public education.  To find out more about the TAIG, become involved by writing a blog post, or make suggestions regarding how we can support your teaching needs, please email  TAIG Chair Katie Nelson at:
