Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Douglas Erwing

Building Student Discourse and Interaction in Class

Dr. Douglas Erwing wants his students to see history as more than just names and dates to memorize. Since implementing Packback, Dr. Erwing says he’s been satisfied with how his students have been discussing class concepts to better understand the world around them.

I’ve gotten better papers and better discourse in class and I attribute a lot of that to Packback. “
